I caught up because he messaged me yesterday morning asking to swap. I got the email right away alerting me to the message. We exchanges information and moved to communicate via email. I sent my stuff around 3pm yesterday and he said he would get back to me in 30 minutes when he got to his office. I don't hear back from him all yesterday. So, this morning I emailed him about sending me his information. I then emailed him again around 1 and 3pm and then at 4:20 or so, I told him that if he didn't send me the stuff, I would have to assume that you're trying to steal my shit. He wrote back write away sayig he didn't care and that he could do whatever and I should be more careful.

Wait. So what's actually happening is you're going postal over someone not reviewing your shit quickly enough?

Way to jump to conclusions. He decided he didn't want to edit your essays, build a bridge and get over it.

As I've said, I didn't include Everyting he said. But in the midst of him ignoring me, he did say that he was using my PS. And I didn't respond until the next day.

My DS was about the different cultures that I've experienced in my life and how I can interact and feel comfortable with people. It would be hard to steal what I wrote, but he could use it as a template. It's fine though.

It's obviously not fine if you are posting on here about it.

My point is that very few things that would end up in a PS are verifiable.

You're right that most things that end up in a PS are unverifiable, but a unique PS might deter stealing even if the details aren't verifiable. Maybe the potential thief doesn't know whether these details are verifiable and won't want to risk copying. Maybe the PS reveals a unique or specific perspective that doesn't mesh well with the other components of a potential thief's applications.

No, but you implied his were generic and that is why they were stolen. You also assume the thief isn't completely retarded in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Your stance has softened considerably, so apology accepted?

Not really:

Maybe in your rush to judge you thought I said "write something unique and personal because writing something generic was your problem last time LOL."

I don't think it's unreasonable to think some thieves might be calculating rather than steal indiscriminately.


My bad on the assumption. I didnt realize you actually meant, "And maybe write something unique and personal so it's not so easy to steal, because I assume you did last time and that didnt work out", or "And maybe write something unique and personal so it's not so easy to steal, and I refrain from making a value judgement on your previous PS". Those are, strictly speaking, not logically incompatible with what you said. . Besties?

This whole thread is just a big, giant Jump To Conclusions mat, I guess.
