Postby SweetnessUVA » Sat Mar 06, 2010 2:43 am

0L's should abide by an "ask, don't tell" policy in this forum. 100% of 0L contributions are wrong and a waste of the internet. Questions, however, are much less offensive.

As a 0L, I think that 0L's should have a 0L indication in their names so ppl know to ignore us

tbh there's a lot of 1L idiocy around here. like when 1L's comment on EIW/OCI. and probably 2L idiocy about how its actually like WORKING (not interviewing) at a firm. etc etc

we should just have freaking 0L/1L/2L/3L/3L+ etc badges next to our names. some of the very 1L's berating 0L's for talking are saying some stupid shit themselves

Maybe we should just have a blanket ban on posting.

I say all kinds of stupid shit, but I do it in the off-topic forum. I don't go into the "choosing a law school" forum and just start making up random facts to spread misinformation. If I did, it would ruin the usefulness of the forum, just like a bunch of know-nothings posting in this thread.

Unless you're going to confirm someone's status, then the badges are a complete waste of time. The people who would freely admit to being 0Ls are likely to be those who aren't (knowingly) dispensing bullshit.

I don't believe that reporting class rank by itself would solve this problem. In the end, none of the information on this forum should supplant due diligence.

In pursuit of full disclosure, I must profess that I am a 0L. I'm also 30 years old, and do not believe myself to be one of these problematic 0Ls under consideration. Take that for what it's worth.
