OMG: I hate how the people at the Imprint (especially that one woman in the office) treat you like the freaking Antichrist when you ask for a refund.

  1. If you went the first day like I did then there would be no problem.

  2. Well, aside from the fact that is selfish and anti-social to ask for a refund, I guess there is no other reason why you should be treated differently.

    p.s. moreover, in the 4+ years you will be here either you will pick up the Imprint at least once in which case you shouldn't have asked for a refund or you won't in which case I'd really would like to show you the door, since I'd expect my fellow UW students to be sufficiently engaged with the world to read the student newspaper at least once.

    3. Fuck you and your opt out fees. The entire reason you use this revenue model is because you know that nobody would support your shitty paper if it ran like a legitimate business. Instead it piggybacks off of a legitimate business (the university) and collects based off of people's ignorance of refunds or their apathy

    4. 2c, AFAIK, the main reason that business model is followed is because students supported the creation of the fee in a referendum, based on the idea that having a student-owned and student-run newspaper was something worth doing.

    5. yes, 2c. u've discovered their real business plan. that's how newspapers survive; apathy. a volunteer collaborative student run collective work, based on apathy.

      isn't apathy why u opted out?

    2. Really 3? Other than one poorly-written article, I haven't gotten the sense that Imprint has any particular 'agenda.' Unless you're counting opinion pieces... but why ever would you count those?

  6. It's convenient to get the refund then go buy something at timmies. Sorry that the Imprint is fucking trash. The comics are shit and the stories are useless and newspapers are fucking outdated and kill trees.

    Also, a huge reason I get the refund is BECAUSE of how I was treated like the Antichrist the first time I got one. Because of that, I get it out of spite.

  7. I'm indifferent to people getting refunds for these things. Imprint, much like WPIRG, enjoys a special privilege in having the University collect membership fees on their behalf at all. But it's a refundable fee for a reason, and getting a refund is your right as a student.

    The smart thing for both these organizations is to not treat the people seeking refunds like crap, and instead to have a 'maximum acceptable allowance' for refunds, and then make sure their relevance/quality stays high enough that they don't go above that threshold.
