This is the best response so far in the thread. Some people get such satisfaction from arguing on an internet forum... Is it really worth it? You said I am unethical, no you are an unethical douche. Blah blah. I got an A in an ethics course, I am ethics expert. Haha, this stuff is hilarious.
Great, another 0L who contributes nothing. Just what the forum needed! Let us know how many As you get at your TTT. For the life of me, I can't imagine why a future lawyer would enjoy arguing. You must be a true intellectual to have posed that question all by yourself.
Na, my mommy helped me come up with it. I also have to give credit to the man up there in the sky and my philosophy of ethics professor. This makes me an expert. The funny thing is I completely agree with all your responses. I don't think I can find one thing that makes me disagree. I'm not attacking you at all. I just find this whole thread rather hilarious. It just seemed to me you that you took everything so personally and came in attacking. I didn't find any of that necessary. With your stress levels being so high, have you considered boxing? I work out a lot right now, but boxing seems to do the trick. With my family situation the way it has been, I didn't want to start jumping on everyone for any small little detail.
Perhaps a few semesters of law school will convince you that ethics accusations are more serious in this profession because your ethical reputation is the only stock you have in your career. Law students and lawyers should not go around making blanket ethics accusations, without substantiation, against their classmates and peers. It's not just personally insulting; it's professionally irresponsible.
Also, I never claimed to be an expert. I mentioned one ethics course, but I probably have a total of 30 ethics credits over the course of my academic career, with an A in nearly every class. But I never used that fact to justify my argument. I offered legitimate reasons for my position. The purpose of mentioning my academic interest in ethics was to explain why I was so offended. Philosophy of ethics is something that matters a lot to me, and I'm going to vigorously defend myself against ethics charges regardless of the forum in which they occur.
As I pointed out above, my initial reply was not an attack, but it was met with a challenge to my professional values. So at that point, yeah, the fight was on.
