ans Laughing Bear
dude, you have GOT to have better things to do with your time than
gossiping with Meany about one high school student's reports from the
summer argumentation and debate class at Cornell. should i just
tape-record it and send you the tape so that this isn't Bryant hearing
3rd hand and then lying on CEDA-L?
1) private vs. non-private
"> From: Michael Miroslav Korcok <firstname.lastname@example.org>
> To: Michael Bryant <MBRYANT@central.weber.edu>, email@example.com
Please note. The double address makes this a non-private post.
ah i see. so the vicious and loopy messages you sent me first, which
were also dual addresses, and which this message was a response to,
were 'non-private'? it is okay for me to post those now? or will you
send the same "private" note you have sent to folks before, begging them
not to post your insane attacks? but then i suppose that is not
necessary since probably just about everyone has received 'private'
messages from you. that is why you were thrown-out of NDT-L, wasn't it?
and i should respect "Bear's rules of double-address privacy" because
why? there are quite a few literally insane messages still saved for
Shaffer, me, and others. those should not be posted because?
2) The CEDA Hall of Fame
yes, it was a metaphor. the kid asked "how good a coach are you?" i
answered "my position in the CEDA Hall of Fame is assured." i was
laughing at the time both because it was an unexpected question and
because i thought my answer was clever. i ALSO explained that there was
no such thing as a CEDA Hall of Fame, but if there were ...
yes, i am proud of my coaching. i believe that i know how to do it at
least as well as anyone there is. do you believe otherwise?
3) Coached Your First National Champion
right, i don't think you have any idea about what it takes to coach
national champions, but of course that doesn't stop you from opining
i have NEVER said ANYONE's life has less "meaning" or any such rubbish.
you ascribe feelings and opinions to ME which i MOST CERTAINLY do not
hold. i think that is the single most distressing thing about your
"private" posts to me and other folks i've spoken with: you don't think
twice about equating me with Stalin, about implying that i think of
anyone as "paltry little peons," and other things which are frankly
unrepeatable in public.
i have NEVER said "excellence in results is the most critical thing." i
believe as a fundamental matter that the means is at least as important
as the end. but i won't apologize for my abilities and effort, either.
no significant insecurities at all from last year. i wish i had done
more for Berman and Shaffer than i did, but i had quite a few other
debaters to coach. they were ALL awesome.
Glen was the seventh national champion that it was my pleasure to coach
at one point: i make no apologies for thinking that i had some part to
play in that. should i?
4) fill us in on being "upset about sharing a topic with the NDTers"
i am not and have never been "upset." the ONLY time this has come up in
my class was when we were talking about different debate leagues in high
school and college. i told them that Cornell was committing to a heavy
traditional NDT schedule in the fall and that i was concerned about
judges we'd never seen before and teams which were very very deep. in no
way did i malign or disparage the NDT or any NDT persons or programs.
5) Pam Stepp
this is dumb. do you have something to say besides insulting me?
on previous occasions you have said the most scurrilous things about
Pam, both privately and publicly. your disingenuous endorsement and
misinterpretation of what she said were annoying. shall i post your
"non-private" comments about parents who put their 7-year-old girls into
the difference is that, unlike you, i REALLY do respect Dr. Stepp and
her understanding of program-building.
get help, Mr. Bryant:
