that's beast.

this an interesting contrast to your thread elsewhere in which you express indignation about being asked to lie in letter of recommendation.  care to reconcile?

julie makes an excellent point.


Yours and Julie's posts demonstrate your superficial and poor reading comprehension.

disagree on both counts.

your post said that you didn't do it, but it didn't say you didn't for ethical reasons.  if that's the case, then great.  but maybe you did it for fear of getting caught, not for dislike of doing something dishonest.  and even if you're going to cite moral reasons for not cheating, why would you come here and draw attention to the fact that one could, in fact, cheat in this way?  especially after expressing your disgust at how unethical a certain MBA applicant was in asking you to lie on a LOR.

and how is mine superficial?  you asked if this has been discussed before, and i said yes, it has.  so had the boalt thing.

and here's another tip for you: if you're going to make other user names to attack people, in particular a moderator, try using a different computer so that IP tracking doesn't give it away.

I explained why I didn't do it when I said I was karmically rewarded by not doing it. Ethical people point out loopholes to help close them. A technique you wouldn't understand because you have no morals. I'm allowed to make as many user names and insult deserving people with any and all of them. You shouldn't be using your moderator status to track people's IDs. What a voyeuristically creepy abuse of moderator powers. If I were in charge I would take your moderator status away for this.

1. you know nothing of my morals.

2. i didn't say you're not allowed to make extra user names.  i was just suggesting that this forum isn't as anonymous as you may think.

3. it's not an abuse of moderator privileges to see who the trolls are.  that's exactly what the moderators are supposed to do.

I think a definition of "troll" would be helpful here. Yoda is sort of trollish, but Pookie herself is substantially less so.

Except when the moderator is a troll.

Good idea.

troll



An electronic mail message, Usenet posting or other
(electronic) communication which is intentionally incorrect,
but not overtly controversial (compare flame bait), or the
act of sending such a message. Trolling aims to elicit an
emotional reaction from those with a hair-trigger on the reply
key. A really subtle troll makes some people lose their
minds.

troll

v.,n. 1. [From the Usenet group alt.folklore.urban] To
utter a posting on Usenet designed to attract predictable
responses or flames; or, the post itself. Derives from the phrase
"trolling for newbies" which in turn comes from mainstream
"trolling", a style of fishing in which one trails bait through a
likely spot hoping for a bite. The well-constructed troll is a post
that induces lots of newbies and flamers to make themselves look
even more clueless than they already do, while subtly conveying to
the more savvy and experienced that it is in fact a deliberate
troll. If you don't fall for the joke, you get to be in on it. See
also YHBT. 2. An individual who chronically trolls in sense 1;
regularly posts specious arguments, flames or personal attacks to a
newsgroup, discussion list, or in email for no other purpose than to
annoy someone or disrupt a discussion. Trolls are recognizable by
the fact that the have no real interest in learning about the topic
at hand - they simply want to utter flame bait. Like the ugly
creatures they are named after, they exhibit no redeeming
characteristics, and as such, they are recognized as a lower form of
life on the net, as in, "Oh, ignore him, he's just a troll." 3.
[Berkeley] Computer lab monitor. A popular campus job for CS
students. Duties include helping newbies and ensuring that lab
policies are followed. Probably so-called because it involves
lurking in dark cavelike corners.

Some people claim that the troll (sense 1) is properly a narrower
category than flame bait, that a troll is categorized by containing
some assertion that is wrong but not overtly controversial. See
also Troll-O-Meter.

I wouldn't worry about that. You're already screwed later in life 'cause of the sugarcane anyway.  ;)

Thanks for the definitions. Pookie doesn't seem to qualify under any of them.

Good idea.

This is rich, a troll (at least physically even if not internet forumly) and her sycophants ganging up on me.

Well, outnumbered as I am, all I can do now now is leave you, exiting the thread with that compelling burn ...
