I used this board a couple years ago to get information about how to do well on the LSAT and which schools to apply to. I found it to be a fantastic resource. I've been away for a while busting my butt in 1L.
This board provides so much good information for prospective law students but it is completely inundated with abhorrent amounts of vulgarity, discourtesy and cowardice. Many of you should be ashamed of yourselves. You hide behind your digital anonymity. You are recreant cowards of the internet age. I hope that the disrespect shown on this website will not infect your conduct in the real world. I find it absolutely nauseating that so many of you can not deal with opinions that differ from your own. Many of you seem to be addicted to the practice of making personal attacks rather than sharing your own thoughts in a calm and persuasive manner. It is surprising that you so often avoid logical arguments because you believe that your opponent is not intelligent enough to truly challenge you.
Do you honestly think the real world will be any different? Do you believe your clients will all be exceptionally intelligent? Do you think your opponents will all follow the same logical thought process that you're so accustomed to? Are you going to throw a tantrum and spew vulgarity every time you encounter ignorance or arrogance? It is apparent from this website that many of you are completely unable to educate someone who does not agree with you. That awful character trait will not serve you well in the future. I challenge you to return to the practices of civility and propriety. I challenge you to contrast your beliefs with others in a way that would make your mothers proud.
