I've been Immussed!

I sort of wish I was a little bit nicer on my post on TFA vs TTT. Joanne Jacobs picked it up and quoted my "snot nosed" remark. It sort of upset someone called R.J. Ohara, enough so that I think he banned me from his website. I could be wrong, but for some reason my i.p. address is banned from collegiateway.org.

At first I thought that maybe there was an error with the website, but when I visited though an anonymizer, the site works fine. I was also able to visit the site earlier while at work.

If I am banned, it would be bit of overkill though. Perhaps the military is different than civilian life. Good natured banter is pretty common, and using "snot nosed" to refer to younger people isn't exactly rare. Sometimes humor doesn't translate so well over the Internet.

Ironically, I am a big fan of programs like TFA and Ivy League schools. I wish I had buckled down during my high school days. My SAT's were good enough, but my grades pretty much sucked.

I just thought it was interesting that military veterans would do so well compared with the elite that TFA selects, especially since we all know that in the long run Ivy League graduates are going to make a lot more money than old Master Sergeants like myself.

Regardless, even if I am banned... I sort of like the idea of the collegiate way website. It advocates small residential colleges within Universities. I would imagine the small college atmosphere promotes student and teacher engagement and provides a cozy environment to learn in. Go check it out.

You've been Imussed!

There must be a bunch of politics that we don't know about and you inadvertently pushed that button.

Immussed... I love it. I am changing the title of this post.

Bet RJ O'Hara's out of Columbia, or Yale.
