The latter would definitely work better than the former, but I'd like to think I can blend in with a crowd if necessary. There are a few people on here (BioE and Kretzy most notably) who will know who I am for various reasons, but other than them, I wonder how well I could keep myself hidden.



I think that I would know who you are.

Also, this is sort of unfair, given that UCB's admit weekend is before Stanford's. Cause I'd have no problem showing up to BoalTTT in Stanford swag if I saw you at Stanford wearing Cal gear. Unfortunately, you get the last laugh in this situation.

Yeah, you could probably figure it out as well. Though I think you'll be in Cambridge anyway, so it won't matter.

Hmm, I am actually starting to believe him in spite of myself. He's got Barbara's name right, and I don't think that it's on their website.



First of all, he said "some Pat Barnes lady"--c'mon. Second, Barbara Brangi is mentioned here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=96&start=175. Third, there's just NO way.

I feel like a total chump for believing him. But I'm new to this whole TLS so I don't really know how to separate the chaff from the wheat like you seasoned pros.

PS I updated my profile today to reflect my actual gpa/lsat/undergrad. I figured I should out myself now that YLS has let me in. Hopefully they won't change their minds!

I look forward to meeting you all!

honestly?

i am dumbfounded that anyone would believe for a second that herb applied to and got into yale. i doubt he's even an applicant this year, he's just an unfunny trollish douche. at best, he's someone's shitty alt. come on people, Image


btw herb you should have kept that old creepy looking guy as your avatar, he suits you much better IMO

no, he's not. nothing about him is enigmatic, he just sucks. i'm a little baffled and amused. he's a lame troll for his first 100 posts, then suddenly he pretends he's gotten into yale and everyone's on his nuts? tsk tsk, TLS

I don't really understand the TLS obsession with calling everything a flame and not wanting to fall victim to trolls. I understand why you might go out of your way to avoid a conman in real life, but why work so hard not to be fooled by someone online? What's the harm if I believe that Herb Watchfell got into Yale and he's really just lying? Is he gonna say "ha, fooled you!" one day and make me feel stupid? Is he gonna PM me and say "TH, I just don't have enough money for my seat deposit at Yale, think you could spot me?" If he does, I'll just revise my opinion.

TLS is a troll's paradise. People argue with the trolls, compliment the trolls, and even start threads about the trolls. A needy troll will never go hungry on TLS.

No harm at all. In fact, I would prefer that people just ignored possible trolls and/or treated them like anyone else. Instead, we get hundreds of posts by people speculating whether person X is really a troll or whether person Y is actually that guy from Hastings who got banned last year. In its most extreme form, troll obsession leads to this:

Had you given me this opportunity a year or so ago, I might very well have claimed to be an enigma wrapped in a riddle, shrouded in a mystery, enveloped in an éclair, gently bathed in the lightest of whipping creams, topped with an Acerola cherry, and blanketed by a wafer paper so fine that even the saintest of grandmothers cannot help but to drop her panties for.

But one cannot both be that which he once was and what he currently is, lest he indulge in complacency.

I am no longer who I once was, nor am I what I long to be. I am wedged between two lonely cheeks. I am three left turns from a colon, two peristaltic pulsations from a putrid pond. I am half a meter from your heart and one billion six-hundred and seven million miles from--alas--Uranus.

What has become of me?

You worked pretty hard thinking I had an alt when I didn't. I didn't quite understand either. Just saying.

That was different. I was motivated by curiosity. The people I'm criticizing are motivated by suspicion.

I think troll hunting is just as fun as trolling. It is like reverse trolling. The motivation may be the same.

I think that you're on to something there. Trolls enjoy playing the criminal, but others equally enjoy playing detective.

It is a mutually beneficial relationship, thus it thrives on the fertile grounds of TLS. Ecotrollogy, the internectual way of life.
