I can't stand withdraw beggars.  >:(

I understand that it is courteous to withdraw applications in a timely fashion, but do we need application police patrolling the boards?

Playful trolls can be fun. Like Garkunkle. I was sorry I had to ban him; his schtick ran out and become a major ass to everyone. Sad times.

Oh my god!  You banned Gark!  YOU BASTARD!

Actually, I thought he was funniest when he was posting seriously -- that dude was insane.

As for withdraw beggars, they've had an effect on me.  I considered the possibility of expressing continued interest in my waitlist schools, even though I wasn't interested, just to see if I could flip them to admit.  But I realize from reading here that such ego stroking is selfish and harmful to other people, so I withdrew.

Hey George J -- OK this is totally off topic, but what's up with your boy Shermie H. on "the surreal life."  The poor dude seems like he is wasted on 'ludes 24/7????

Actually, wasted on 'ludes or not, he comes off much better than the other idiots on the show, at least for the five or ten minutes I watched flipping channels tonight.

the beggers are just really anxious people really trying to get into law school and perhaps are seeing their dreams slip away.  trolls don't have an effect of me.

Begging is undignified.

On the other hand, being a male private part is very dignified.

Hell yeah it is.
