To be clear, nearly everyone has mentioned to me that they are NOT simply writing because of Conan, but of the idea of students posting on the page.
I want to be clear that I have control over the queue and so far have just posted whatever that came in that was "college misery." (You can't believe some of the intricately prepared spam messages I've been getting lately. I'll post one the next time one comes in.)
And I appreciate Conan falling on his sword below, too.
But let us be clear, I'm the moderator currently. Nobody else wanted to do it. I was told I could run CM the way I wanted to, and I'm going to do that. When Conan OR ANY STUDENT sends in some misery that is germane to our quite wide mission of celebrating the ugliness of the academy, well, I'm going to post it.
I do hear the complaints. I do understand them. I understand the page is different, and not like the good old days, and all of that. I even reached out to Fab this morning with an email and he said something like, "Who is this? How did you get my number? Please call back when my staff can take your compliment or complaint and we'll get you a bumper sticker or whatnot." So, I know I have him on my side.
