You've answered all kinds of things more than once. And you're usually pretty nice about it. The previous kid wanted to know your thoughts on two very different systems. He didn't want the peanut gallery on it.
If you're too busy, don't answer. If you work at say Weil and want to shit on Kirkland, maybe don't answer. But The irony of putting yourself out there as taking questions and then being a prick about it I think gives the kid the right to act pissy.
Maybe time to pass this thread onto a junior partner who still gives a shit.
pass this thread on? are you under the impression that this is some kind of favor that WE are doing for HIM?
"oh you were nice before, you answered repeat questions before, now we're entitled to your time and energy"
if that is the case why should anyone ever be nice or generous with their time?
the previous "kid" is an adult with (presumably) two biglaw firm offers. I'm sure they will be fine with whatever level of advice they get. FOR FREE. From someone who does literally charge nearly $1k an hour for their advice.
Jesus. I know everyone is freaking out about OCI etc. right now but it is valuable to learn that 1) entitlement is not a good look, and 2) no need to bite the hand that feeds you.
