Maybe what I say is wrong, but I never claimed it to be right by citing sources/knowledge that I can't back up. You are right opinions, there are many of them, that's what makes this country correct. I don't quote budget meetings that may or may not exist, or speeches and quotes that may or may not have happened. As a matter of fact, I never based anything I said on any facts. I have a voice, and I don't have a problem using it. Feel free to call me wrong, but stop being abusive.
What makes your opinions so valid, with no proven factual basis. You may well have the right facts, but you are appearing as an anonymous person on an Internet forum does not do anything to establish the credibility that you claim.
I tried to ask you questions politely on PM and you ignore me.
You are the one calling me names and use coarse language toward me. I repeated said I have no interest in arguing with you due to your lack of manners and respect, and you chase me around like a rapid dog. Yet when I write you nicely, you don't respond.
It is really hard for me to understand how you think it's appropriate to give people advice on where to go to law school when you have no idea what you're talking about. Sure, you're allowed to say whatever you want, but as someone who goes to the school you're constantly misrepresenting on TLS, I'm going to correct you. If you don't like the response you get when you write bullshit about my law school then stop writing the bullshit. It's really that simple. If you want to continue to post factually incorrect "personal opinions" then go right ahead, but it's really not appropriate to mislead people in their law school search when you have no clue what you're talking about.
On TLS, most 0Ls acknowledge that actual students at the school being discussed are more knowledgeable about things like budget, job prospects, etc. simply because it's difficult to have all of the facts about these areas without going to the school. Many 0Ls on TLS are humble enough to understand that. This isn't simply a situation of two opinions, neither of which is more correct. Many of your thoughts on Boalt are demonstrably false. Unfortunately, much of the data isn't online, which is why TLS encourages current students and alums to post about their schools- we can provide you with what we know about the school so that you don't have to make your law school decisions based on the uninformed opinions of other 0Ls. For some reason, you've decided you'd prefer to act like you know what you're talking about instead of listening to the people who are in much better positions to give accurate info on the subject of the law school they attend.
Ultimately, I think it's unfortunate that you truly believe your uninformed perspective is just as valid as the the perspective of someone well placed to have information about what you're discussing. It's also unfortunate that you seem to take it so personally when people respond negatively to your random opinions.
And, as you've pointed out, I'm not simply a Boalt cheerleader. When it makes sense to point out something negative about Boalt I have no problem doing that. This is what I propose: You stop commenting about stuff regarding Boalt that you don't have enough facts about to have an informed opinion and I stop "abusing" you. Deal?
