If you see people banned or shouted down at TLS, send them a PM to invite them here. The information is good, with a dose of realism. Only the traffic is lacking, and that's easily fixed.

Not a bad idea (in theory) but how can you PM a Banned member?

Obviously, you can't. So that would go more with the "shouted down" part of my post. As an option for a banned user, you can send an e-mail, if it's public in their profile, which should still be visible even when banned.
Note: Insults made by me apply to everything associated with the people and ideas being insulted, except for other people.

IRRX, it seems you enjoy provocation and antagonism.

I just couldn't resist the chance to show how you can point out stuff here and not get banned for it.  Blue's still here and I think he tried to crawl under your skin a few times. :)

Hahaha... So far I'm actually being helpful, but I could see this devolving quickly ... lol.  I feel kind of sorry for them, actually ... I started law school just before all the doom and gloom economy, and everyone was all happy and positive.  Ohhhhh well.  Times is tough!

That's what I don't get about people. I see it in all trades and walks of life. People have a job they can get in a good economy and go "no I want to go to school, it is sunny outside so let's stay inside" and then when they can't find work that is worth having, they go "no I will not go to school the economy is bad, it is cloudy and rainy outside so I must stay out doors".

Are people just plain retarded?

I'm not sure what the point of this is in relation to what I posted ... situations are different across the board.  Back when I was applying to law school, I was in undergrad and didn't already have a job (and I had planned on attending law school for many years).  That was just before it was general knowledge that the legal job market was terrible / going downhill.  I was just saying it was nice that there was none of that and everyone was positive.  Now potential law students are facing all the negativity.  In some ways, this is good, in other ways it's bad.  The legal job market may just be worse than the general job market, too.

I was referring to the "doom&gloom" that you referred to. What I meant (and perhaps I should have clarified at the time) is that many people I have known (in and out of lawschool) have the mentality that I described in my post. The doom&gloom you mentioned made me think of that and them.

I agree most don't work (a real job anyways) prior to undergrad, in undergrad, or between that and grad school. As a result you get people who THINK they know the world but don't know jack.
