I posted the following to _____ with thanks for and admiration of his work.
In the future class, if you can not write anthing more than "nice job, I agree, etc" then do not bother to send anything.
Your posts so far have been greatly lacking in intelligent thought and have received grades solely due to my generosity, which has now ended. I am now completely content to enter "zeroes" for grades, for work that does not match _______'s standard.
"Thank you, __________, for your obvious interest in the material and for your indepth post.
You are a thinking student as opposed to your classmates who treat a discussion (a chance to air ideas and concepts) as a waste of brain cells akin to the social, insincere words used at "Frat parties" while consuming too many beers.
I am totally bored with the banal treatment of the discussions. Your discussion, _______, is now the standard by which all furure posts for entire class will be graded."
Please keep up the excellent work, _____.
I censor out the names due to personal stuff. Also, _____ writes very long responses for his discussion posts.
1. A 0? Seriously, you could give us partial credit, but a 0 is like for something you didn't do. You could simply just give us partial credit.
2. When the professor wrote "a waste of brain cells akin to the social, insincere words used at "Frat parties" while consuming too many beers." First of all, I do not drink alcohol. I am underage, and I do not want to go to jail for underage drinking. Also, just for the record, I do not go to frat parties. I'm never part of any parties where they have alcohol, woohooing, and other naughty stuff.
So, I am freaking upset when the professor e-mailed me that. I try to get good grades in that class. I seen freaking responses that are like 2 lines, and I write way more than that. I would of dropped out if I weren't pass the drop out date.
So, all in all, the professor was being a bitch!
