Really refreshing humour, Ham! Perhaps a bit "un-Christian-like", but I feel tempted to say that they do deserve it!...hahaha

The last pic in your post is what I like most...LOL

Now, while these folks on the other board keep ranting, shouldn't they be "refuted" by making a bit of them, especially when taking into account the fact that you can't discuss with them in a civilized manner?!

Almost everyone here used to engage in conversation with them on their websites but were banned for their opinions. Pornographer Chip White, owner of Degreeinfo used to say it wasn't a democracy. This is a democracy. Most people here simply don't believe that government provides the best model for higher education nor that they are effective at regulating it. Government is best at perpetuating a system of more professors working less hours with rapidly rising tuition.

An example would be George Gollin of the U of Illinois who teaches one intro physics class for around $100,000? per year. I wonder why the laziest civil servants are the most vocal when it comes to defending a crumbling system?

The truth?
Those people (and there are "gangs" of such buffoons in every niche of the internet, not just DL) are -very often by THEIR OWN admission- severely mentally and/or physically challenged.
They scream to the top of their lungs what a wonderful real life they have, but it turns out the best part of it requires Microsoft products to run...
It isn't a mystery how they despise one another highly...sure, there are the chief mountebanks who hold their breath hoping to close one more sale, or to use the whole chanchada as a facade.
They are deranged and they are on a mission...it's the cocaine-snorting bum lurking in the poorly lit alleyway doing his nails with a switchblade plus $15 a month worth of IT fees, and eventually $20 web hosting fee.

Hell, how many of those phony "distance education authorities" have full DE/DL degrees? Hell, John Bear created "unaccredited distance learning schools" that were good enough...for other people and his bank account...RolleyesSad
Thomas Chip White has NO DEGREE soever, apparently...
Janko the fraud took TWELVE years to get a doctorate...from a ZA school...

Why are they there, then?
To feel someone...come on, the turd with Parkinson and fibromyalgia bouncing Nazis out of his barn by the scruff of their neck...please...
No wonder their punchlines STILL revolve around WWII...it's like that guy who's 115yo and still hasn't gotten over LA MARNE or THE ANGELS OF MONS, whom he saw, truly...while those in attendance roll their eyes and read the cafeteria menu.
They are all bandwagon appeals, red herrings and anal beads...perhaps they think they can paint the cross de Lorraine on them and turn them into a rosary...

And being banned at Degreeinfo and that DL Discussion or whatever it was called, was really one of the more mild forms of harassment people here suffered. Some of us were actually harassed at home and at work by assholes. While nobody would admit publicly that they engage in that kind of behavior, it has been known to have happened.

My argument is not about government, per se, but rather about abuses of power by those who can do so. This includes public servants, writers, politicians (both right and left) and all other self-important assholes.

Gollin once tried to defend his use of the University of Illinois website for the purpose of stalking and harassing people who pissed him off. He cited this as his own expression of "academic freedom."

IMHO this is an extreme form of hypocrisy. Think about it. This guy will stalk graduates and others associates of institutions of higher learning that he believes are worthy of his own scorn. Yet he uses "academic freedom" as his defense! A classic example of projection.

I am sure there is a very special place in hell for such people.

"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."

It’s kinda like Fight Club, and everyone remembers the first rule of Fight Club, right?


Gus

First Rule of Gus Club is no one gives a shit what they have to say and now they barely count as talking to themselves, because no one else is listening.
