If you really want to be an attorney, then I suggest you develop a thicker skin. I imagine the disciplinary committee is similar to a judge, in that it does not appreciate frivolous complaints. Save your breath for an attorney that is being unethical, not one that just has poor taste in jokes. I am beginning to wonder, however, if you do want to be an attorney, or if you're just some a@@hole troll, b/c you keep commenting about how "you" want to be attorneys, not how "we" want to be attorneys. Maybe you're just too good to lump yourselves in with the rest of us? And by the way, it's "attorneys" not "attorney's." Inappropriate use of the possessive apostrophe really irks me.
Thanks for the advice.
You can imagine all you want. You are beginning to wonder if I want to be an attorney? Good for you. I'm beginning to wonder if I should care even a little bit about what you are beginning to wonder about.
I am no 'troll'. I am an active member of this board, a law student, and a person who doesn't like to let it lie when people insult others based on their religious beliefs.
Thanks for the lesson in proper grammar - the true mark of a person who is frustrated, unable to argue, and either embarrassed to be wrong in anyway or unable to accept that they are wrong.
The reason I used the word "you" and not the word "we" is that I wasn't condemning my own bad behavior, I was condemning yours (which is perpetual).
Say what you want, I don't really mind - but making fun of people who failed out of law school because they are religious and incapable of reason (or pray too much or whatever you reasoning is) isn't okay. And, frankly speaking, I don't want to be associated with people who think that sort of joke is at all humorous.
So yes, I AM too good to associate with the likes of you.
Instead of letting it go (which would be mature - by both of us), admitting it was in poor taste, or simply making sure to be clear to all who come here that this was a light hearted joke, you choose to vilify me and attack me for standing up for what I believe is right (which is that people shouldn't be made fun of for being religious OR for failing out of law school).
Guess what? Your opinion is of no consequence precisely BECAUSE of your behavior.
Yes, this was a joke. Yes, I responded, a heinous crime, by pointing out that the statement made was unacceptable, offensive, and bigoted. Do I deserve to be attacked, called a troll, and given grammar lessons? Maybe in your world.
But then again, I don't live in your world. I am an adult. I am careful not to say things that come off as bigoted or offensive. I find no joy in reading that people fail out of law school, nor do I find it funny when people make fun of religious people for their faith. I'm sorry that doesn't conform to your standards.
And let me make this perfectly clear - if you are representative of the type of person who becomes an attorney (and thankfully, you are more of an excpetion), then I don't WANT to be 'lumped in' with you in any way, shape or form.
You can choose to live your life however you wish. I'll be the one taking the high road, not making fun of people for their religious beliefs or academic acheivements or failures.
And it doesn't make me a troll to not respond to insipid comments either. It makes me intelligent.
I do so appreciate the grammar lesson.
Here is a couple of annoying improper apostrohes for you:
I'll let you fight this one out with the others but you are chastising them for making fun of your improper grammar but you call me out on a made up word that had an obvious meaning? I am glad we hold others accountable to a higher standard than ourselves.
The word 'dislove' doesn't exist.
I fat fingered a key and/or placed an apostrophe in the wrong place.
One is a mistake that is of no consequence and one is a made up term, like irregardless or flabnoiderzoink. I hold no one to a higher standard than myself. I think it's funny that way you yahoo's like to pile on and pile on. Yes, I pointed out that the word 'dislove' was not a word while you assaulted my patriotism. But to point out an improperly placed apostrophe? That's a little insipid, the only goal of which is to try to make someone seem or feel stupid.
It's time for my LSD vacation.
Once every few weeks, some asshats like to ruin what is otherwise a pretty decent board with rude, offensive, or innapropriate comments. God forbid anyone calls these uber-fragile human's on their bull, because then the less intelligent (in an effort to be funny) go into attack mode, debasing and devaluing this site.
I'm off on vaca, learning about apostrophe placement and it's equivalence with fictional, made up words....
You know I looked up "Vaca" all I could find was a posting in urban dictionary.
