That's not what happened at all. I was a member of the board at that time and remember the incident very well. The girl thought she could read the posts on the board and "get" the program without reading the book. Which is pretty lazy. And then she freaked out and starting posting something weird like "I need to delete my membership, this board is scaring me." It was weird. The girl wasn't "kicked out." She posted that she wanted to delete her membership and didn't know how. He deleted the membership for her as she wanted. When you have a group membership on Yahoo, it clearly has something at the top of the page which allows you to edit your membership and delete yourself from a group. The board is for people who have read the book and are prepping which mostly consists of doing hypos and the E&Es. Not for people hoping to pick something up. I don't know what was so weird about a bunch of pre1Ls doing hypos and going over points of the law that freaked the girl out. She was going to see the same d.a.m.n. things when she started law school.
Either way, I think she should have look around and maybe PM someone on the board. Or maybe contact AF privately. The girl came on this board and admitted that she phrased her post wrong. I think if she had clearly stated what she wanted then everything would have been fine. But this board seems to be a more appropriate place for asking "what type of books do I need" type of questions. The PLS board states on the opening page that it's for people who have read or are reading the book and are doing the program. That seems fair enough.Quote
Fair enough, I'll admit I'm not a member of that group, but heard about it from a third party who had been there (and probably has some issues with either AF or PLS in general). In any case, I was just making a point that AF is not just in it to be a "nice guy", but rather he's out here to make money. Not that there's anything wrong with that, that is after all the reason many of us are going to law school.
