It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is. If the--if he--if 'is' means is and never has been, that is not--that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement...

Especially because he could have said that comment about 1000 different ways that aren't offensive.

"I don't want to live east of 18th street because it is a dangerous neighborhood" is just one example.

Probably asking people on another forum how to defend against charges of academic dishonesty in law school

quick, someone check PhilosopherKing's forum

Agreed.

The comment was bad enough, however, that it almost makes me suspect troll. I think it is most likely an alt for a different poster so they can say their racist thoughts/try to get help on an exam.

I can't explain why this post bothers me so much. I think it is the juicy pride which drips off of the backhand he gives to poor minorities.

I mean how are they even going to find out who this guy is? "Um professor one of the 80 people in our class posted anonymously in an online forum asking a question about the exam." What are you going to do, do you guys want to take a whole new exam?

If it makes you feel any better, his future got a little less bright.

And to answer the above: Yeah, unsure how you are going to identify him though there is a chance that someone already knows who he is.

EDIT: stupid to dissect the comment any further than it already is.

eh, not sure I'd call it a "dumb mistake." Beyond obvious problems with the honor code, the directions on the exam clearly prohibited asking anyone, on any medium, any question about the exam. I mean, the dude blatantly broke the rules, and in a way that could've hurt/made it unfair for everyone else. It was a shitty thing to do, and he should take whatever consequences people want to bring on him.

I'm not going to report him, for the same reasons that I wasn't going to report him yesterday. But if other people want to report him, I'm not going to stand in their way. Again, dude deserves it.

The fact that he may also be racist is just icing on the cake. Although if someone reports him, that comment might not fly too well with our professor, who is African American and does a lot of work with race and the law.

If the mods turned over the IP address (to the school, not the thread) you could track it to a specific address. Assuming he didn't send the post from the library, doing this would narrow it down to a few addresses, probably his house. If he did send it from the library, the school probably has a way to track the internet usage of student accounts on the network.

It sounds like at least one, probably multiple people have already turned him in already so I think that is going to be satisfied. I doubt the mod's turn over much unless they get some sort of formal nice request from Duke. The higher chance is if someone already knows who he is. Or, in the alternative he turns himself in thinking that it becomes less severe and calculates his chances of being caught from the above two are relatively high.

Doesn't signing up for TLS forums require an e-mail address? I'd imagine that would narrow things down.

Non-content electronic information (including basic subscriber information, IP addresses, and any email accounts he registered under) can be turned over by a private party (TLS) to another private party (Duke) without violating either the Wiretap Act or the Stored Communications Act.

Just saying.

Never have I been happier to click on a "." thread.

Also, I'm surprised by how most everyone ITT is on the same side. Usually in situtations like this, half of the posters start telling people to relax and discourage narking.

I think people would be more sympathetic towards OP if the overall composite of him didn't make him seem like such an asshole.

Its finals time, everyone (i.e 1Ls) is worried about grades, nobody wants to think this is happening at their school.

If I fail my exam this week I am just going to direct my prof to this thread and be like "what was I supposed to do, NOT read and participate?"
