    On the off-chance I'm not being trolled:

    @justastudent you do realize that who you so eloquently put as "human scum" will quite likely be helping you pay off that mountain of student debt in your avatar once you graduate?

    Lol, students are famous for trying to overthrow the "system" that enabled them to get to college/university in the first place ! :D

    This seems like a plot to a movie.  I wish I could have laid it on thicker for more screen time.

    Maybe a troll, maybe an experiment in online bullying (nobody like a pussy or a cry baby - sorry) Incase serious, I'll just leave this here..

    Had to get an account for a class.

    Had to interact with human scum.

    Came somewhat scarred and scared.

    Please delete this account, I am done with this site.

    Thank you.
    Ya interacting with people outside of the protective bubble of school and your home life can be pretty scary, but don't worry you'll get the hang of it.

    For what it is worth... The US needed Bernie to shake things up. So this guy/gal/non-binary is more likely a Hillary supporter... You know... a little nudge but not enough to rock the boat. =P

    Also back in my days we had to face human scum when ever we went to the internet... and it was always uphill and raining. 
    Agreed threatening people with socialism should wake up almost everyone in the country.

    MIght be just an internt prank, but it is easy to believe.  Result of poll conducted on campuses in US most students would be in favor of abolishing free speech.

    Bring spankings back, and paddles in the classroom, I can't believe how infantile this generation of adults is.
  • flizzerflizzer Member RarePosts: 2,450
    Just know that in 30 years or so this generation will be criticizing the next generation of adults.  Somehow we figure out how to carry on even with our safe spaces.

    For some reason I can't stop thinking how nice it was when we were young and ignorant of the absolute maelstrom of insanity the world really is.  =)

    Great community you guys are presenting in this thread. Keep up the good work.
    That's one way of looking at it.

    On the other hand, that may have been the entire point of this exercise; this fellow's teacher probably saw s/he needed some "real world exposure".

    I've worked in some companies where the culture was very good, and I've worked in environments where some of my coworkers make off-color comments pretty frequently.  Learning to 'rise above' is an important skill to develop!

    If the OP had been attentive, he might have come away a little more enlightened, which may have saved him some serious heartache down the road.

    Sorry but who is foolish enough to think that this was a legit account?

    Check some of his posts - he was totally biased and disagreeing with him makes us "human scum"

    No, I'd imagine they'd be in favor of abolishing everyone else's right to free speech but their own. Only those that speak the "truth" have the right to be heard, etc.
  • flizzerflizzer Member RarePosts: 2,450
    I might be just too old at this point, but everytime I read about the current college group of kids I get scared.  This happens all the time and just shows how old I am I imagine.  When I was young I thought our generation knew it all and had all the answers and would fix the world, hehe.  These kids will discover soon enough what life is like.

    That was pretty much what the "third wave" experiment pointed out. =) 

    This have been a good conversation

    People who can take something random like this and politicize it need to be punched square in the jaw, EVERY TIME they do it. Seriously. Is middle America this retarded IRL or are those joke troll posts?

    Maybe perhaps this poster more clever than any of you thought, maybe the real experiment was. How do people react when confronted by a person who seems interested in your subject but then appears to turn around and betray you.  Maybe this thread is where he is taking notes and everyone fell for it.

    Help me Bioware, you're my only hope.

    Yes it's all a social experiment on how the public reacts to shady sounding stories. or SSS as I like to call em.
  • SteelhelmSteelhelm Member UncommonPosts: 332
    Internet can be a pain in the butt. But you shouldn't allow yourself to get butthurt by anonymous butthurt people. Whenever I get too butthurt from the internet I fast from it and when my butt is cured I come to get some more. It's all about controlling the organs ;).

    But then where would the drama present itself?

    If the OP thinks this forum is bad I shudder to think if he had joined reddit, something awful, or pinterest.  O.o
    Trolling is actually down a lot lately and this forum is one of the frendlier on the net. Yeah, there is always a few bad apples but I fear that OP is a bit soft skinned for a public forum.

    Now, if people remember the forum back in 2008 and the infected AoC Vs WAR vs everyone else, then you remember the bad times.

    It really wouldn't surprise me at all if that was the case, some of these tests are exactly that. This very well could not be a student and be some psychological doctor running a tests to get results. Running people in the forums as some sort of lab rats through a maze seeing which paths they will take.

    Question everything, assume nothing I say :)
