    Re: Bubu Appealing

    It's too bad nobody knows what really went on other than the the one's involved. If indeed it was truly consensual and and not any different than any other college kids being college kids he deserves to be part of the team. We know that she has not told the truth but I haven't heard much about Bubu except being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sad for him either way.

    Is anything that you write here ever supported by actual facts?

    Re: Bubu Appealing

    Something I've been wondering is was there ever a length of time given for Bubu's suspension? He's a senior so a one year suspension and complete removal from the team has the same effect. It just seems like an unusual penalty to not kick somebody out of school but not allow them to play varsity sports forever. I haven't been the biggest Bubu supporter with his legal troubles, but the whole thing has been handled very strangely and dragged on an incredibly long period.

    Please go ahead and illustrate where I'm wrong with facts. I'll be waiting patiently.

    I get that you're all butthurt that he was ever let go, and find it impossible that perhaps he made some bad decisions at all. That's great. But it doesn't mean you're right.

    The Office of Judicial affairs has the option to use an independent arbitrator/judge when the matter is confidential(protecting accuser identity). This cannot be guaranteed when they used a university committee to review this case. Without breaking any student privacy law the OJA can tell us at least if the hearing was headed by the university committee or an independent arbitrator.

    Now, does anyone have minutes from the meeting where they cleared Bubu? Wonder if the vote was close?

    Don't argue with Angie. If you have a good point and say anything that might go against what she is saying she will ban you for a month. Especially when it comes to the Bubu situation.

    How about not inflaming the mods for no real reason? Bubu was a ******* and he ended up in a poor situation because of it. It isn't like this whole thing is a witchhunt out to get him.

    how about the mods doing their jobs and moderating instead of using their status as a mod to back their own arguments? Janny and Angie are the worst with this.

    It's actually sorta funny, Linden, since I've never banned anyone for anyone close to that reason. :) And the post to which I was responded actually had no point at all, let alone a good one. But if Nallen wants to think that, it's cool. I don't honestly give a crap about the Bubu situation at this point - but saying that there is zero potential for it to affect fundraising is silly. Also implying that the only function of the University president is fundraising is also silly.

    I'm not implying that he's higher than the BOR, but he definitely is necessary - um, Spanier was sort of integral to the whole Sandusky debacle, and it's silly to think that any university president isn't thinking of that whole situation when he/she makes decisions that could affect the safety of the student population on any level. I think any president wanting to cover his own *** is going to err on the side of caution for the next few years, rather than to be in a similar situation. It's common sense.

    That's flat-out never happened, but you are free to report instances where it has. I don't use my mod status to fight stupidity; I have logic for that. If I am in a debate and someone is going over the line, I report it and let other mods weigh in/deal with it who are not emotionally invested.

    If I were to "use my mod status" to back an argument, I'd just point out that you're both questioning moderation actions (which is against site rules) and bringing the thread off-topic, then close it. But I don't need to do that.

    Well, this took an unexpected turn. No real suspense on who will win and who will lose, but it's fun to watch nonetheless.

    I only raised the issue of moderating because the poster I quoted brought bans/moderation into the discussion. Moderation has nothing to do with this thread, unless this devolves into personal attacks.

    And I know you didn't mention me by name, but feel free to cite where I have used mod status to back my own arguments. If anything, I avoid certain discussions because I am a mod here.
