^ It was noted. What can I say....you apparently need a sense of humor. If you want to be the Church Lady, then so be it. Someone needs to think of the children I suppose.

Regardless, I see that I've made myself just as guilty in getting us off topic. In that case, to respond to TS, I'd say that your fear isn't particularly well-founded at this point, considering the majority of us are still waiting as well. It seems like the next batch of acceptances/denials will be coming out toward the end of this week (I'm speaking in reference to the T14), if the yahoo groups site is any indicator. So stop worrying so much man :)

I see you conducted a very thorough search. I think it goes without saying that you are beyond stupid.

I see this as an anal joke—either it's you liking anal as a girl, or as a guy. At worst, this is slightly homophobic. Where you get rape, I have no idea. If your RC is this poor, you are going to be shit in law school.


betasteve, context is key. You can have a look at the history if you'd like, but I can't imagine why you or anybody would want to do that. It also goes without saying that you are beyond stupid. I'm already doing just fine in law school, but thanks for your concern.

Also, really, the "Bubba" doesn't tip you off? Are you not an American? You're really not attuned to American cultural cues.

We should rename this thread "Section Stacking and Social Justice: A Case Study Involving the Moral Monster".

History that you won't point me to. Got it.

And "it goes without saying that [I am] beyond stupid"? How do you figure, sweetheart? Also, Bubba is a big redneck, nothing more. hth.

I see quickly why you are so insufferable.


Bubba is also shorthand for a prisoner. Do you think most anal sex in prison is consensual? Where are you from? Were you born in the United States?

Anyways, whether you consider the comment a rape joke, as I contend it is, or "slightly homophobic," I consider myself vindicated in calling A'nold a moral monster. I also still consider you a complete moron.

Update: have a look at this, if you want to research American culture a bit:

To be fair, maybe you're not a complete moron. You might just be very poorly attuned to American culture, either because you're anti-social or were raised in a different culture. So, I partly walk that back.

If that's a joke you found to be in such poor taste that you've equated it with mocking rape victims, I can only assume that you've never watched any comedy shows in the past 5 years. Stay far far away from Family Guy and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Whenever I'm tempted to get into an online skirmish like this, I imagine how horribly it would skew the manner in which I regard my old man if I walked in one night and he was engaged in a convoluted flame war like this.

+1. I'd never heard of it either. I do hope A'nold didn't talk about the section stacking/curves on his apps, b/c that would be bad news.

Thanks for your concern, but I'm just fine. I'm no wilting, sensitive flower, here. You won't see me whining like some people (hi, A'nold). Just passing judgment on the morons and scumbags.

Many people who haven't been in prison know what "Bubba" means -- see, s.e.g, A'nold. Anyways, I think you meant that as a passive aggressive insult, but for the sake of making amends, I'll take it as a begrudging apology. You can go back to threatening to ban me now, if it makes you feel better. After all, if you don't stand up for the "slight homophobes," who, dare I ask, will?

I think it would indeed be bad news--that's not the thing the Admissions Office wants to see.

But let's step back for a moment: Aren't there always going to be sections that are "stacked" relative to the others?? My section, e.g., had a disproportionate number of smarter kids compared to the other section. It's called the luck of the draw.

And one more thing: Since when do schools account for section rank? If A'nold is #3 in his section, and there are multiple (say 5) sections, he would be just outside of the top 10 of his T3 (perhaps he's clarified this already); and that is the metric, the only metric, the schools will go by.

Without getting too much into this (petty) argument, I will say that the original post/comment by A'nold was pretty tasteless.

Also, A'nold, I hope that you hear some good news soon about transferring.

Edit: Furthermore, this would be a good place to tell some people to stop getting all butthurt over OP's remarks.

However, how you get making fun of rape victims out of whatever was said is beyond me.


I didn't quite deduce that A'nold was making fun of rape victims, but the comment did come across to me (a guy) as odd, inappropriate, and probably insensitive. Now that was bad enough, but IF he has made similar comments in the past (I haven't seen his history), then he is exhibiting an attitude that's problematic.

While I'm not a great fan of harshly "convict"ing someone like A'nold in the court of TLS opinion, I do think this argument should resolve in favor of the idea that we all should simply stay away from the rape/anal jokes--if you want to call them jokes.

I wouldn't take it as an apology. Moreover, as far as I can tell, you are a chick. So him referencing Bubba to you neither implies anal rape from a member of the same sex in prison nor homosexual sex whatsoever. However, how you get making fun of rape victims out of whatever was said is beyond me. And, there is a reason I PM'ed you about the ban... it's because in on-topic forums, discipline is done behind the scenes. But here you are, wanting to bring shit out in the open to try to.. what? make yourself feel bigger? Demonize me? Good fucking luck. The fact of the matter is, you have failed to find 2 posts that vaguely indicate that Arnold has made fun of rape victims. Even on a tortured reading, you can barely count this as one, but let's give you the benefit of the doubt. So - 1 more. That's what we are looking for. And why more than one? Because you clearly alleged that this is pervasive behavior on his part, and not a one-off instance.

What your problem is, I really don't care. But this bullshit taking a quote and amping it up to be something more offensive than it is, and then trying to pin it via google to his username isn't going to fucking fly.


Nah. It's just most convenient to write here. It's true -- I don't give a damn to dig up old quotes from A'nold where he mocks rape victims. If you'd look, you'll find him believing that I am a victim of rape, and in this very thread, you'll find him mocking me for it. I'm not sensitive though, so I really don't mind much. This is mostly just sport for me. I don't find it entertaining to dig up old posts, so I'll leave that to you, if you desire. Or, you can just ban me, or you can continue to look like a semi-literate moron. The opportunities for you are wide, my friend! I'm sure the other TTT morons here will jump to your protection as well, as they are known to do.

Talk w/out reading much? There are two sections in my 1L class. Our sections were stacked according to LSAT scores/schollies on a top 1/3 contingency. I was even willing to concede that while immoral, it is not unforeseeable. BUT, what some of you fail to realize, my section was curved to below a 2.7 and the other section around a 3.0.

People that claim this practice is not brutally unfair need a dose of reality. And to my good friend convicted: I am the third in my section. If a rank of ~ top 5% is not good enough for you to think that I succeeded this year.....don't know what to tell you.

And for the history people keep asking about: convicted is a former prisoner (or so he says) and softboiledlife and him got in an argument and matlock and I jumped in to defend him when people took his posts out of context. Convicted proceeded to call me a "moral monster" and a "scumbag" and has trolled me ever since. Seriously, he pops up every few months to try to demean me or whatever he thinks he is doing. It's pretty sad.

Edit: and lulz at the suggestion that convicted always makes that I have a sense of entitlement and that it will show through in my writing. Just another ad hom considering I am the least "entitled" individual you will probably ever meet, haha.

Hi A'nold. I actually never said whether I was ever a prisoner, nor did I say my gender, although you do make presumptions about both. This is the type of reading comprehension that landed you in the TTT to begin with, and will probably keep you at least in the near-TTT.

So maybe you got convicted of a felony and just didn't serve any jail time. Have fun on the C&F

The stacked section's curve keeps fluctuating. First it was 2.5, then 2.6, now it's "below a 2.7." A few more weeks on TLS and maybe the sections' curves will be equal?

Haha. And, do you know what the sad thing is? Convicted has built up this sense of "me against the world" viewpoint that is so irrational that he attacks one of the people on this board that would support him 100% for turning his life around. Convicted is a horrible representative of "look where I've come from and what I've accomplished even though I am a felon." He proves over and over again through his posts that he has the maturity level common to many people that find themselves in prison and doesn't take responsibility for their actions. You are not a victim convicted. Somebody else was a victim at your hands, and you've now made a life for yourself. YOUR attitude about that will sink you if you don't start acting like a victim yourself. Just admit your shortcomings, apologize, move on and prove to others that you are a changed person. You will likely get great support from the majority of people.

Another example of you liking to hear yourself talk. ONE of my classes was graded to under a 2.5. I've said that the section is curved to a 2.67 which is under a 2.7, thus making your post absolutely retarded. Convicted alt?
