Wow, this is incredibly perceptive of you.


What exactly is a troll?

A troll really loses his purpose if he is read but not responded to. Every bit of attention is fuel to a troll. Act like he doesn't exist and it will get old soon. Unfortunately that is easier said than done.


The problem is is that only TLS regulars will have the where with all to put him on a foe list, and then there will just be no one to rebuke his posts for all the new/infrequent posters . . . that's how bad advice gets out there

I don't, necessarily, but that is one of the best catchphrases (not the right word, but you know what I mean) of all time.

So I know what listing someone as a foe does. What does listing them as a friend do? Do you get an email whenever they post? That would be deadly for some of us. Hundreds of emails a day (cough, Kronk, cough).

That is true. But we can probably keep him out of the Yale thread by ignoring him since new posters will probably not join in at this point. I read everything he posts when I come across it but I will not address anything unless it was directed at me. I am "trolled" out.

I don't share his politics, but if every pundit had 1/10th the wit and poise of William Safire then the world would be a much more interesting, edifying, and humane place. Getting mad at him every week was my favorite thing about reading the New York Times. I don't even really look at that paper much anymore.

No, you get a green light next to their PM when they PM you.

I'm gonna go to the Yale ASW before I commit for sure, but it's pretty much just to make sure they aren't cannibals.

Hmm a seemingly useless addition to TLS.

Also, booby, did you go to UCSC or UCSB? PM me?

And booby/TH - is Stanford totally out of the running for both of you now? Are either of you going to go to ASW? TH, you must feel pretty inadequate compared to booby. She got a Darrow at Michigan; you didn't even get in!

Dept. of Irrelevant Information. :lol:

Oh, also you can see when your friends are on the site at any given time by accessing your PM page. They're listed on the left.

I would argue that getting waitlisted at Michigan is a greater accomplishment than getting a Darrow there.

I'm also more impressed by people who were WL'ed at Virginia than those who got Dean's Scholarships. Ah, the oddities of law school admissions!

Oh, but to answer your question crack, I'm not really considering any school except for Yale. I'd kind of like to visit Stanford just to see what's there, but I doubt I should skip much more class than I already have.

4.0/4.1? You could use some additional time away from the classroom, Tommy.

Does anyone have a time machine? I'd really like to know what Yale is going to do with me so I can move on with my life.
