Wow. 20 kids injured because 1 kid brought a knife to school. Keeping this community in my prayers. Just goes to show that we need to change the way we approach mental health in our schools and this country, not put the focus on gun control.

Have you posted the following to Sublime? "It is a simple question. Why keep this going for 5-6 years?
What is in it for you to do so?"
I have done so. I use different words.Most recently yesterday, in fact.

Since you guys are good at historical posts check earlier on April 8 and look for the kerosene/match comment

The CNN article had no details. Was it one kid stabbing other or a gang fight?

There are predictive tests used to keep sex offenders committed on the likelihood they will re-offend. Perhaps it is time to think about whether those tests can and should be used in different contexts, earlier

Since when is it a school's business to demand a student fall into a particular weight class? How many fat kids are being threatened with being put on leave if they don't slim down? I've never heard of such nonsense. I'm not usually quick to call for lawsuits, but to me, they had no right to force her into any treatment plan under duress.

Sub, what say the lawyer?
That is crazy! When I was that age and about 100 lbs (at 5'10"), I remember drinking those 2,000 cal shakes and I couldnt' put on an ounce.

If it were reverse (someone heavy going through the same thing), there would be a lawsuit for sure. I'm with you; I am not quick to call for lawsuits, but this is one of those cases where I think it's legit.

<quoted text>OH! So you're saying it's not reasonable for Ferrerman (or me, for that matter) to react to anything that happens. What Angelique and Sublime have done and continue to do (sorry, I know that hurts you to read that) is insignificant. It's a non-issue. They're free to do whatever they want. But the way Ferrerman reacts to their behavior that's continued for 5-6 years.....now THAT concerns you. That's not acceptable.
That's what you're saying, right?
Here's the thing -- and perhaps later down this thread this was said -- no one wants to get into YOUR fight.

I also see that they are egging you on right here on this thread while you are trying to incite them here as well.

I still want the answer to the question of why do you want us all to care. Why? I like/dislike people on my own info. I don't think you are lying but you do have some misinformation and I'm not in the center of this at all.

Why? Why continue to fight with Sub et al? Why not ignore? Ignore when he follows you, ignore what he says. All of you look like idiots now rehashing this.

I posted some of the links to say, "hey -- you're right." Thought you might be satisfied with that. You need to be satisfied with that. Let other people chose who they want to post with/who.

For the most part I'm going to ignore these posts on these subjects, unless I get really super bored.

Ha! That is funny. They could get the picture retaken. I'm surprised they took this one. I can see how that can happen. in grade school they have so many "special" days. I'm glad I'm done with all of that. Then there's the part of me that remembers how sweet the kids can be sometimes at that age. Then I remember that they all grow up to be teenagers.

Do people seem to be getting more violent as a society or is the ready access to media making it seem so?

Yeah, great, if we try hard enough, we can find a potential problem with anyone. Let's just lock up all children until the age of eighty just to be on the safe side

No, he's a lawyer in a corporate job. In-house counsel. Shorter hours and less pay, usually, than at one of the big law firms. There are definite benefits from being in-house counsel.

I'd lay off calling his kids the r-word. He should lay off calling you "just a house painter" as I think that's deplorable making fun of someone's work no matter what that work is as long as it is legal to do that certain work. I don't really care what someone does whether it is a dog poop collector or a CEO of a major corporation. Everyone has their value.

End of discussion here for me about all of this. Now at least I know you're doing it just to amuse yourself because I'm really not much amused. By either side on this.

<quoted text>Terri, we know we're right about all this and we thank you for your post. Only a complete idiot can look at all the evidence and not come to the conclusion that Angelique770 and Sublime1 are trolls and have been specifically trolling me for 5+ years. I know they are not going to stop no matter what I do so, it's fun to watch them go on and deny the obvious. Race too!
However, because of Sublime's vainglorious posting about his alleged *real life*, it's really fun to expose this alleged, high dollar corporate lawyer/wife swapper for the internet troll that he is. It's a helluva lot more fun to beat that idiot up and down the threads than A770 who is most likely the proverbial troll posting from grandma's basement, and quite possibly may well be, a 300# longshoreman named "Lou".
The thing with Sub is, his self-aggrandizing postings might be true. That means I have whupped a corporate lawyer in keyboardal combat! Not just any ol' generic fake 'Nam vet troll- a college educated, bar-passing, BIG TIME troll! And, I have beaten him at HIS game, one that he started at the behest of a faceless, anonymous troll he's never met and probably never will. A770 will crawl back under a rock and continue to troll me and others. S/he'll leave Sublime in its wake since everyone knows who he is.
Still, there's a chance that Sub's lying about the corporate job and is himself just a fat troll in some basement. We can always find out! Wait- some people just met him in Florida...
Oh my! He does exist!
That actually answers my question.

I echo Toj' comment. Lay off the kids. They aren't part of whatever you have going with Sub.

Hey Sub- goes for you, too. Lay off comments about Ferrerman's kid or child custody issues.

Lay off the baiting, too, please.

Wrong, people are reacting because they are tired of your insufferable blathering of the same thing over and over and over. Not because they care about what your blathering about.

If you would be happy to be ignored, why are you even posting? You can be equally well ignored if you dont post at all.

And again its not your content or your cause that we care about, its the fact that you chose to dump it all here.

Wrong again. You are the one trying to control content. You keep bringing up carp from years ago and screaming about how awful it is. YOU! You are the one who is trying to control what is discussed, and it makes you bonkers that we dont want to discuss it.

I don't especially enjoy the racist, sexist and disgusting things some of your friends post here, but short of referring to it why should I tell them to stop? In comparison, what I've said is far less offensive. Something to consider while seeing that all of you are basically attempting to control content....

I don't have a lot of time today.

Not my area of expertise ... so this is my opinion, not legal advise that people should follow as if it is true:

Generally speaking, absent a federal or state law preventing discrimination, it's perfectly legal to discriminate. I don't know of any law that protects skinny people from discrimination, especially if the school claims it is health based. Only certain people are protected classes ... people who historically have suffered discrimination. Even under strict or intermediate scrutiny, which is applied to protected classes, a school could possibly argue that protecting the health and welfare is an important enough interest to require someone who is skinny to the point that it is unhealthy to leave school and get treatment for an eating disorder.

Just because I don't ignore their constant provocations and respond sometimes, doesn't mean I keep it going. Even if I ignore them, the loser still follows me around making comments.

No one likes them here or on any of the threads they do this stuff on. No one wants to listen to them whine about how they are poor wittle persecuted Hegel and Ferrerman.

They are only here for this sort of stuff and to keep it going.
