Hmmm... I disagree with ZAP pretty strongly. I think it was right for Big Tex to bring this up.
In this way? If you'll read my point, it's not so much that I take issue with bringing it up. I'll make this clear. I DON'T. I don't take issue at all with raising the question IN THE RIGHT WAY. Tex went about it all wrong. He just wants to pick fights, and that's obvious to me. He gets off on it.
Let's go back over what Tex COULD have done. PM to Pookie: Did you split the thread? No? Who did? KGD? OK, I will take it up with her, thanks for the info. PM to KGD: I hear you split a thread, and it seems like it's an abuse of power to me. Would you mind talking about it?
That could have ironed the problem out real nicely. Instead what do we get?
"It's the stinking, filthy rotten IN-CROWD! They're AT IT AGAIN! They're conspiring to cut off all dissent! And POOKIE is to blame! And since we all know LEXY runs the show behind the curtains, SHE's partially to blame! AND... Oh, wait, so you mean Pookie didn't do it after all? Well then, GOOD! Because I have GRUDGING RESPECT for Pookie, but it must be Lexy's fault still because she's friends with KGD too and didn't tell her pre-emptively not to split a thread she didn't even know was going to be split! And while I'm at it, I think I'll go complain directly to Andrew about the moderators, too!"
As you might gather, it's the METHODOLOGY I take HEAVY issue with. I agree with Tex after going back and looking at the thread. It didn't need to be split, and there's no precedent to do so. All the same, I don't think KGD had bad intentions, and above that, I can assure you there's no "in-crowd conspiracy". The problem could have been handled civilly instead of in an accusatory way.
That's my point. Take it or leave it.
Hey - I didn't get the email today & thought I was out. However, I got the call around 1:45 today from Michael Madgen (?) at the admissions office. It caught me a little off guard.
Melissa, I'm thinking that's a good sign - apparently not all accepteds got the email today!
