Even by wacky Wiki standards, Oppose #1 is a lulu: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Req.../MBisanz#Oppose

After reading this, I can't help but envision MBisanz primping at the mirror while wondering which tight t-shirt to slip into for the day's strutting.

Oh, you malignant narcissist! evilgrin.gif

Yeah "malignant" narcissism is a strange reason, but Martinp seems to have a problem with MBisanz' response to the rare extension of time that happened in the Cla68 RFA. MBisanz' comments were thus:
QUOTE
Confused, I would rather a checkuser or arb handled the concern quickly than extending an otherwise passing RFA


I think that "confused" is the least I could say about extending an RFA in order for parties to conduct an unverified smear campaign. MBisanz would rather ask a checkuser to determine whether scandalous claims plausible before extending the vote. Good for him.

This is Keepscases (T-C-L-K-R-D) , who has an RFC open for his disruptive edits on RFA. Who does this remind people of?

Keepy is only in RfC because an attempt to get him topic banned at AN was a fiasco. Hey, the drama-go-round never stops. ermm.gif

If Keepscases didn't keep up his nonsense on RFA, there'd be no need... oh what's the use, no one will be interested.

Indeed...then we'd have nothing to do but look admiringly at those dozens and dozens of MBisanz photos. evilgrin.gif

So, this leads to the most obvious question for MBisanz: what's with all of those pictures of you? It looks like you're the most photographed man this side of Robert Pattinson -- how does it feel to be the center of the shutterbugs' focus? evilgrin.gif

This is all very amusing. But his bureaucrat election seems to be foregone.
Right now, 156 for (including the very worst of admin assholes, nice work Matt,
all those years of butt-snorkeling really paid off!!) and only 5 opposes.

So, narcissists vote for other narcissists. Big whoop.

My personal favorite was the "Juris Doctor, Georgetown, 2012 (Expected)".

If I saw this in a resume, and you were anything more than a term away from graduation (let alone 3 damn years), I'd laugh, and throw your resume out.

"Currently studying". Yes. "In progress". Sure.

Not "Expected".

I can see "Expected" being written/sniffed haughtily while looking down the nose.

Apparently MBisanz feels that Georgetown's JD program is unchallenging, a moot point, a fait accompli. Perhaps he could express that to his professors and see if they could do something about it?

He also may want to consider taking some courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology. It looks like he is making his clothing out of late 1960s wallpaper. blink.gif

I thought it was an attempt to show that he could "get down wit da homeboys" and that he wasn't white and nerdy? ermm.gif

And after this is mooted about, perhaps a moot trial in moot court would be in order?

There's still the "Passed Examination and Admitted Before Bar (expected 2012)" ermm.gif Ah, the Faith of the Young in their Destiny. Is it not pure and wonderful?

I think Cool Hand Luke is expecting, too, but is a bit further along in gestation. Although another Scientology Arbcom case may frighten him into a miscarriage. wink.gif

Especially since that timing means he's merely been admitted. Law school in the US is a three year deal, so if he's "expected" in 2012 it means he matriculates in 2009. I'm pretty certain that Georgetown only matriculates new students once a year, and that hasn't happened yet for 2009. Should be in a few weeks.

It's technically improper for him to claim to have attended a school that he has merely only been admitted to. Given that most first-division law schools have first-year fail rates in the 30% to 60% range, I'd say it's highly optimistic of him to predict graduation quite so soon.

Caveat: Some schools have early summer programs, and there are a handful of four-year programs for specialty degrees. However, it's unlikely either of these applies to our dear friend here.

Jesus, really? That's nuts. I'm estimating, but I'm virtually certain that no Canadian law school has a first year failure rate higher than 10%. Do those figures include people who drop out, possibly because they would have to repeat classes?

And for whatever it's worth, putting expected graduation dates on resumes is certainly the norm up here; I'd be surprised if the culture was any different in the States.

If someone said on their resume, "Currently attending Georgetown law school, projected graduation date of September 2012" I would know that they had barely started, and I would ask them about it in the interview to see if they had actually started attending classes yet and if they were sure that they could work full time and still finish law school in three years.
