Comment of the Day: Parsing the BS

Manor Hall on the Hamline campus.
In response to the news that the school's adjunct professors had voted to unionize, Hamline University administrators released this statement:

"We believe this may create inequities and barriers among our larger community of adjunct professors and could impede our efforts to build collaborative processes and stronger relationships."

_Joe_'s interpretation of that obscurantist sentence is our comment of the day:

I've had amazing adjunct professors at Hamline, and I heard that they can barely make a decent living, even though they put so much time into teaching. Congratulations, Hamline faculty, for unionizing!

My response to Joe to in that article should have been comment of the day, or at least it was better than his. How can a completely subjective statement that can be easily objectively proven false be "comment of the day"? Glorifying bs is killing society.

@_Joe_ "Butthurt" is jealousy. Jealousy is envy. If I were you, I wouldn't be envious of what you are. I was calling out an ignorant comment, from an ignorant poster, that was glorified by an ignorant "columnist".



"Butthurt is jealousy."

No. Just... no.

"If I were you, I wouldn't be envious of what you are."

Do you see where you went wrong there?
