OMG: The night before an assignment was due a student in one of my classes sent this out in a mass email: "heres what I wrote so far. Honestly guys pool our shit together. This prof suuuuuucks and I don't know about you guys I ain;t learning shit from her." In a single email this student insulted a decent professor with real world experience in the field we're learning about, suggested we violate the University's academic integrity rules, and used appallingly bad grammar and punctuation. To all the people who spam my inbox with crap like this, fuck you!

  1. Forward the email to the prof

    1. There were multiple emails sent, not just the one.

      I'm in this class too, and I received 3 or 4 emails from this guy the day before the assignment was due. He complained about not learning shit from her, while never attending class.

      And OP kind of understated the real-world experience part - this is a class about Canadian Foreign Policy and she is the former ambassador to South Africa and India.

      So she is kind of one of the 'rockstar' profs in the political science department... And she has to deal with dumbasses who want to cheat like this...

  3. I agree completely, I love this prof. I hope she's subscribed to the mailing list so she can see this shit-talker

  4. She's not the bessst prof, but she isn't as bad as he says and she is so knowledgeable. I'm afraid of hurting her feeling by forwarding the email. She seems very sweet.

    This guy is a total asshole in the tutorials. He interrupts her constantly.

  7. While I agree with you that this person shouldn't have used D2L to spam the class, let's not forget that sharing the work on assignments is very common to all students. Especially in the Math and Engineering faculties. Im sure the majority of us have benefitted at least once from violating the University's academic integrity policies.

    1. Agree, working on assignments as a group is common and I wouldn't have found this to be an issue if the guy had just said something along the lines of needing help/wanting to work with others. My issue is primarily that...well, he essentially sent a spam email to the entire class bad mouthing the prof. Dick move.

    2. If this is an essay-type assignment, "group work" would be a really bad idea. Having no correct answer like Math would, it's a huge red flag to see a large group of people spouting the same things. For Arts classes, group work really should be limited to group work assignments.

  8. I saw this email as well. Really pissed me off. That kid doesnt even come to class and then cries because he's too dumb to get her assignment. Should approach her and let her know

  9. It's too bad this student couldn't handle his situation professionally. It's also too bad he's blaming the professor when, in reality, it's his fault for not managing his time.
