I'm 99% sure "Mike" is not his name. He probably anticipated getting called out, or at least the possibility and chose a decoy name. He cannot be that stupid. Can he?

This could probably get him in A LOT more trouble also. I mean, he probably chose the name of someone that is actually in his class. This could hurt "Mike's" reputation. I think this is the worst thing he has done yet...

Report him, for "Mike!"

Well based on his posting style, I think we can say with relative certainty that it is a male. That eliminates half. So we can lynch one out of 40.

EDIT: Seems people already talked about this...

The only way that will happen is if a Duke student brings the thread to someone's attention. Which would be justified on their part. I highly doubt anyone would go out of their way to report someone at a different school....I've been surprised by law students before though.

I am in it for the LOLZ

Or maybe it's an ironic reference to racist border patrol vigilantes?

Without more conclusive evidence, I really, really doubt that there's enough here to get someone kicked out of school over. "Well, this guy on TLS has racist tendencies and knows something about DC...I heard Ted say we should revoke social security benefits for the poor once and he lived in Silver Spring when he was a kid!"

OP is one of 35 people but I don't know how it can be narrowed down any more than that.


If it's just males, down to ~19. I could probably narrow it down to ~5 after eliminating folks who don't know/probably wouldn't know about TLS and folks who are too smart to formulate a question this way.


Don't forget about knowledge of DC.


Any of these guys named Mike? Or have we established that wasn't a real name?


So you honestly think there's even a slight chance that OP would create an alt to defend himself and put his real name in the username? Are you high?

Imagine if you were OP. Not only are you stressing about your final exam, but you're stressing out about this now LOL.

Why would someone named "Mike" put that in their username in this situation?

dude tried to cheat on an exams with ONE RULE.

I'm not saying some TLS random should turn him in, but if one of his Duke classmates does, they'd certainly be justified in doing so.

Can anyone say with certainty whether this has been reported, just to make sure there's no chance anyone is in a breach of any ethical duties here?

Does the Duke honor code require students to report known violations?

Did I honestly think the OP would post a test question on a law student forum asking for help? Did I honestly think he would come back as an alt defending himself and not expect people to notice?

He has obviously surprised us with his stupidity thus far...using his real name isn't out of his realm of possibilities.

This lynch mob shit needs to stop. Obviously OP is a pretty unscrupulous character, but does it really matter that something happens to him because he posted a short Q on TLS? I think it's safe to say he isn't going to be above median anyway, so he isn't affecting anyone else in his section.

TLS can easily provide the school with the content of the posted message along with the user's IP address, which can be matched to any emails the user has sent from that same IP address to or through the school's email, verifying the identify of the user.

Done.

IDK, but I think you could make the case an admitted attorney would have a duty if they saw this to report to the board of admissions.

i used to keep a class roster of my class, then found out they had created a Facebook group and all of them were on it. Now it just sucks knowing who's on the deans list and everyone else.
