By the way, you use many grammatical errors. You mistake "its" for "it's", and "could of" and "would of" are ungrammatical. It "should of" been "should HAVE" for example.

I can't figure out what you're trying to ask, because you use too many grammatical errors. I was trying to politely hint at that. If you'd been more clear in your verbal self-expression, I'd perhaps be able to get the gist of your initial post. But unfortunate for you, this post is unintelligible to me, and likely to a wide range of other people. We (me, and likely the wide range) are therefore unable to respond to it.

That's cool how you referenced a case.
I'm so far from the end of my tether right now that I reckon I could knit myself some socks with the slack.
Oh. Missed some of that. Disagree on "The OP's post is entirely clear." Fact: it isn't entirely clear, since at least some of us aren't aware of what he means. By definition, the fact that you had to paraphrase pretty much disproves your very claim. Anyway, now it's beside the point. I didn't know  he took an LSAT course (where'd you get that?), got that he liked tutoring,  didn't get that he wanted a tutor directory. What about  the thing about a code? Maybe you can help me on that one, too.
Maybe its against the rules or something but  a list of tutors by region/state and maybe even a rating system would of really helped me out.  Could of saved me from taking this course. Not that I didnt benefit from it but I would of benefitted more, and saved money, with a good tutor and good materials.Is there a reason this hasnt been implemented here? Seems a lot of people end up here looking for this kind of help or info on courses and they would benefit significantly from it. Save them from courses that might not suit their specific needs. I imagine tutors/ students might even be willing to pay a small fee for this kind of service if thats what the hold up is?I'm ready to add one to the list as soon as someone finishes the code.
Don't be absurd. The OP's post is entirely clear. He wasted money on an LSAT course that didn't help him, and he had the rather sensible idea that LSDers could generate a directory of well-liked tutors and classes, organized geographically, to help future applicants avoid his mistake.
Bricolage raises the two most obvious problems with creating such a directory: (1) given their desire for anonymity, people may be hesitant to post information about their locations and tutors, and (2) given the already-significant number of LSAT tutors on the board, and the amount of conflict they have seen in the past, the directory could easily devolve into a forum for dirty competition, fake reviews, etc.

I do fine on RC, thank you. I reversed my items (now numbered) 1 and 2, sorry. Couldn't even figure out what I did or didn't know ... humph ...
Two good points but I think they can both be overcome with foresight.
