LOL!!! Not only does this person not know how to spell, they have no idea how to write! They (There should be a singular for "they" lol, it always annoys me to say "they" when referring to a single person. Someone should create a generic word for a singular person that it's in third person :P) mix the "praise" and issues that they have with the professor making it difficult to understand what is the praise and what isn't. I sure hope this person isn't an English major! lol
Well, I suppose exams ARE the "fare" in most college courses. Actually, that works in two ways - both as "the usual fare," and as in, "paying the fare."
haha thats not what he was trying to say and you know it.
Can you be sure? Well, OK, you probably CAN be sure... :-)But people like that are out there...I've seen papers written for Masters level courses in NYU, and the quality of writing was...well, let me just say that I was astonished.
"they" as a gender neutral singular pronoun is quite old. There are examples of its use in the 19th century by writers who are today considered classic authors. For example, at least one of the Bronte's used it and possibly more (I think it was Emily but I'd have to check). We should just accept this already. I don't think that it is fair to criticize the spelling of "fair" as "fare" here in that that is a minor spelling issue. When making quick, anonymous comments, minor spelling and grammar should not be a big deal. This is not like earlier examples you have given from the website. In earlier examples at least one of three things occurred: First, the poor grammar was part of a general pattern of poor writing. Second, the grammar was so poor as to make the statement difficult to read. Third, the poor grammar and spelling occurred in an accidentally ironic fashion such as complaining about a professor's lack of command of the English language.
Yeah, you're right. I was scratching for something to put up. One of my prof read the ratemy today. I knew that he would read it, though because someone said so on there.
There is another issue with this commentator: The remark about the grading curve indicates that the commentator has no understanding about how curves work.
Joshua, They don't know what they are talking about. This is a professor I'm taking this semester. I'm pretty sure he doesn't grade on a curve. Most of my professors this semester don't. In this school they use the straight curve, not bell curve, anyhow. The thing is that, we aren't given our final exam grades. I mean, if you Email the professor, you might get it. Last semester, I got 3 of my 4 exam grades. However, I Emailed my professors. One prof did actually post it on Blackboard. The students in my school have the weirdest ideas. One student told me that professors get paid per student. So, I asked, "did a professor tell you that?" Of course not! The professors are union, actually, but, I don't think they make that much. After all, it is a public college.
