Do Admissions Counselors Read This?

Do they? And also if they do, can they use any of this information against or for us?

Some do. Johann Lee at Northwestern, for one, has made google+ posts or tweets implicitly responding to stuff on TLS.

Why wouldn't they be able to use it? There's no expectation of privacy on TLS. Whether they bother or not is an entirely different question.

Or just be careful about what you say, such that you'd be willing to stand behind it in real life.

This is a prudent policy in today's world.

FYI: I don't think that my law school dean has affected me in any way in law school. But YMMV.
