It was a joke. I didn't expect you to really tell me the name of your famous book... BECAUSE YOU DID NOT WRITE A FAMOUS BOOK. Nobody here believes all your bullshit. We all know you are a troll. But it is entertaining that you've kept it going this long.

I did not write a famous book. I helped write a famous book and it was not an artwork, it was nonfiction. That's all.

I don't understand your hostility, I really don't. People here tried to help you, then you got defensive, then you got hostile. TLS is a great, great tool if you are respectful and show some humility. You have shown neither, and you have gotten the appropriate response.

It's called For Whom The Bell Trolls, apparently.

That is not true, romothesavior. I believe it started fine until you and your gang of trolls/antagonizers started making fun of people who get beat up when they were younger. It was fine until I was consistently called a liar. Very few people actually focused on the task I had solicitied. In fact, I am still being called a liar. How about this, don't call me a liar, don't call me a troll, and don't make fun of peopel who may be disadvantaged and I won't have to defend myself against people with such little sympathy for those who may have had a tough time. Deal?

And shame on you for doing so in the first place. Can't believe this is the type of person who represents our legal community. No wonder no one has jobs.

I didn't start making fun of you for getting beat up by your stepmom until you had already gone out of your way to prove you were a crazy asshole.

Shame on me for what? I came into this thread well after it had melted down. And I'm not the one sending PMs to people telling them their school sucks.

First thing said to me: "This was an entertaining read. Recaldo I don't think you are over your psychological issues. You seem like a crazy person. Or you are a brilliant flame. Not sure which."

I hadn't said a word to you and you already began criticizing and insulting me, as well as people with psychological issues. Do you really think people with psychological issues is such a non-issue as it to be compared to minor and largely defensive statements I may have said. Give me a break. Lets look at how intense your statements got when I merely criticized you for insisting I was flame and "not over my psychological issues"........

+1. And please explain to me how I am somehow connected to this "gang of trolls." And also explain to me why my response about your job prospects was unwarranted, given your attack on me via PM.

I came in at page 4. That was plenty of time to realize you were either insane or a troll. I don't feel the need to be sensitive to your psychological issues because you're an asshole. And I don't believe any of your story. There have been tons of people on TLS who have shared personal statements or addendums about overcoming adversity and/or dealing with mental health issues. But normally these people write about it in a tasteful way and don't blow up and start attacking people when they get criticism. That's why you are worthy of ridicule.

These people, this gang of trolls and antagonizers are in law school for christ sake. The legal profession has fought for disadvantaged people for hundreds of years, sometimes to a lawyer's own detriment.... defending rights and notions of justice for the weak..for those that didn't or couldn't get a chance. And these people are mocking it. They are mocking hundreds of years of attorneys being at the vanguard of our society to make it more just and more fair for those who were victimized, unfairly burdened, or disadvantaged.

Bahahahaha... No. We are not mocking it. Clarence Darrow is my hero. And John Adams defense of the British at the Boston Massacre is another one of my favorite legal hero moments.

We are mocking YOU for being a jerk to everyone on TLS. That's what we're mocking. (And some were probably mocking your terrible writing skills)

Sure, I shouldn't have blown up over such a statement. I should have realized how tasteful this joke was. I am such a jerk to have a problem with this.

I'm sorry guys, Kilpatrick is a caring, gentle man, who is sensitive about family rape, deceitful sexual activities, and anything relating to 9/11 apparently.

Again, this joke was way after you had already shown you were crazy. It's not like you posted your terrible essay and I made that joke right afterward. And besides even you admitted it was funny. :lol:

I guess you have no intention of emulating the morals and ideas embodied in these men. You think Clarrence Darrow told someone who was the victim of rape to "killself?" Or someone who was a victim of 9/11? You fail.

First of all, if your life circumstances are true, then I am very sorry for them. I wouldn't wish that on anybody and I'm sorry that shit happened. But they do not entitle you to come in here and act like a total jackass to everyone and then turn around and take the high road when we attack you for it. Maybe some posters earlier were out of line, but your behavior is absolutely atrocious. You are either a very, very skilled troll or you are a person who lacks any notion of respect.

And yes, I did tell you to killself. Right after you sent me an unwarranted PM attacking my future school.

You are backtracking from your original, hurtful, insensitive, and offensive comments about everything from abuse and more. I am glad you have seen the errors of your ways and that you now "do not wish that[sic] on anybody." Thank you for this. I hope other people reading this are comforted that at least one of you have decided to show some sensitivity towards the community and humanity's struggles in general.

I refuse to respect someone who is making fun of these types of disadvantaged, weaker people. I'm sorry. Like I said, I am glad you have changed your behavior and become remoreseful, and hopefully this experience will open your eyes a little. But to criticize my response to your monsterous behavior and words and to demean the response by saying it is I who has no respect for peoples, that it is MY behavior who is atrocious. Well then, I am sorry, I will admit I had not an ounce of respect for you and your gang of trolls and stand by this atrocious behavior. You earned it.

Edit: Oh, and thank you for admitting that you think suicide is funny. We will let this pass, just call you ignorant, and let those on this board who may have had someone close commit suciide know that my "atrocious behavior" caused you to say it.
