<quoted text>LOL, did I upset you? I'm not the one trashing Ros, you are and the 400 posts you are talking about have been written by a very small group of people just changing post names. No, I didn't bring her into this, I was simply replying to a post about her. As for Karen Bowling lying to the PA class, I don't know I wasn't there. I only have the word of some random poster on here. What I do know about her is she's a straight shooter, she's good at what she does, and if anyone can turn around a failing program its her. So, until you have something intelligent to comment please comment to someone else. You are out whitted, out smarted, and just out numbered.
Can you back up all these statements your making? Is it really a small group of people, or possibly hundreds? Maybe one sole poster? Maybe it is just a figment of your imagination? Do you have papers that show you are whitty, smart, and out numbering the posters? Maybe your behind all these posts? Where is the proof Karen knows her s*** in education? Can back you back up all your stating?

I don't need to back anything up. I'm not making negative comments about Karen or Ros. You can tell its virtually the same people posting because of the spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors they make. They are the same. And what's with this medication, imagination crap you keep spewing? Can you not think of anything more intelligent to come up with?

You have no proof it is the same people. I have no idea how many are actually posting on here any more than you. It is not logical to think you know every person that writes on these threads. The only way to know is for the actual person to come and tell you. But then again they would have to know who you are. The meds comment is another poster not me. A pretty angry one too. I'm being funny with the imagination statement. As for coming up with something intelligent, I already have. Otherwise you would not be so defensive when someone brings another perspective into play. Not knowing WHO is what makes Topix intriguing. You will always wonder just WHO you are actually talking to.

Not defensive, just inquisitive...and for people to get angry over a topix post is childish and pathetic, don't you think? The imagination statement wasn't funny, it was stupid. Another perspective isn't the issue, I enjoy a good debate when it's based on intelligence, but these people are down right nasty and have absolutley no proof for what they are saying. If you post in a derogatory manner you should at least be able to back it up or it looks like you are spreading lies...and so far lies are all I've seen about Dr. Artis.

You aren't "inquisitive" you are ACCUSATORY.
You don't use "intelligence" you use stupidity.(try to use correct spelling for such words as "absolutely".

You have been outed as a dumbass.

Dr. Artis has a great reputation on campus and throughout Beckley. The only people I ever see or hear saying anything in the negative about her are you and your idiot buddies on Topix. If you are so big and bad why not post with your real name or better yet hop on your broom stick and fly on over to MSU and confront her. BIG SHOT. LOL.
She doesn't have a good reputation on campus. However in beckley she is a native and went to school with people here. That has seemed to gain her some credibility in the town.

You should be bitchslapped. Go to work. You seem to live your life on topix. You also seem to have a negative predisposition. My guess is that you have been victimized and named personally on topix.

No, I don't work for any department at MSU, and I haven't been vicitmized or named personally on topix. I do however know Dr. Artis and several others that work there and am tired of seeing her name being drug through the mud for something she had absolutley no control over.

Do you enjoy a good debate or just gossip? What proof do you have this is all lies? Sometimes the truth can be right in front of you. Denial is a funny thing.

I agree with you.
All that poster does is stir up accusatory shit.
They accuse other posters of using different names, and use subject matter diversion to draw attention away from folks who have posted the truth. Like Karen Bowling's big lie to the PA class that they will graduate BEFORE June 2012.

What school lets you graduate WITHOUT finishing all requirements? That stupid crap you can walk. You are NOT DONE UNTIL AAAAALLLLL requirements have been met. You do run the risk of your transcripts being stamped unaccredited just like the nursing students. So hell yeah you have a right to be angry. Who in their right mind wants to reach the end after all that work and all that money spent on a degree that will have unaccredited on the transcript. This is like taking a loan out for a car, you think the bank will just let you have the car when you made all the payments except the last one? No! they will still repo it if you do not make that last payment!

Anyone from this area who still chooses to go there after all this has surfaced is an idiot.
(I'm talking more about freshman rather than returners. I know you can't just pack up and run, especially when other institutions won't even accept MSU'S credits.)
MSU For Profit

Article on For Profit schools. MSU is a for profit school hiding behind non profit status. Hey MSU administrators, where does all that money go? Why has it not been put back into the school and the students? Who have the stock holders been all these years?

Why not keep your silly red nappy head in your office, try to lose some weight, purchase a professional wardrobe, and stop defending the non-defensible.

You are pathetic!

LOL, whatever you say. This post doesn't even deserve a response. If you ever have something important or intelligent to contribute then we can engage in a debate. Until then, have a good night my friend.
