But simply witnessing it from 35 blocks away on the NYU campus is just not convincing from my point of view. So I'm sorry, but on this point, you and I differ and I believe that, even on TLS, we are allowed to not agree.
You're allowed to not agree, and on a personal level I'll agree that you're not required to agree with me on anything I said. It makes me sad that you won't, but I can't do anything to change that. Your opinion is yours.
But you're not allowed to come into a thread where someone is legitimately asking for advice on whether they should discuss something in their application, and start judging and berating them for even thinking their question is valid, and you are required to agree with me as a moderator on this.
