For those of you who don't pay attention to things going on here at school (which I doubt is any of you since this is a UNH blog and you're reading it) but yesterdays issue of TNH received quite a bit of attention. Sadly it was not because of my awesome column.
Apparently several students had a few problems with one of the feature articles. These students disrespected the entire staff of TNH, including the editors, columnists, contributing writers, photographers all the down the line to the volunteers who distribute the paper around campus by throwing away stacks of issues simply because they did not agree with a specific article.
FUCK YOU IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE DOUCHEBAGS WHO DISRESPECTED ARGUABLY THE HARDEST WORKING STUDENTS ON CAMPUS. YOU ARE CLASSLESS SCUM AND DON'T DESERVE TO ATTEND THIS FINE INSTITUTION. YOU MIGHT AS WELL GO TO UMASS.
I am not going to lie, when I first started attending UNH, I did not think very much about TNH, but after attending just a few writers meetings I am willing to argue that the students who run TNH put more effort into every issue then most people do in their real jobs. I'm talking about full time students who spend all day and night Monday and Thursday in MUB 156 editing and laying out the paper. And by all day and night, I mean they are there until sometimes 5 or 6 am. They are providing a great service to us while we get to sleep or get drunk all night, completely oblivious to the world around us.
And I don't want to hear any shit about me only sticking up for them because they have printed a few of my columns. I am sticking up for them because they are good people who don't deserve what happened. And they can't get away with swearing and calling those douchebags, douchebags.
I wasn't planning on writing this post, but then I saw a few of these scattered around the MUB:
Do you see that you fucking scum? You try to ruin it for everyone but you still fail. Just like you probably are going to fail at life. I hope you're fucking satisfied.
Most of you probably will never realize how much time, talent, and effort goes into each article and issue. And all TNH gets in return is the fact that most students here read the paper and get something out of it. Just because you disagree will a column does not give you the right to get rid of all the issues you can. This is a fucking college, where students are all at least 18, that means that you're fucking adults, but what yesterday proved is that there are still dozens of immature pieces of shit who can't appreciate anything that they don't agree with. How the hell do these fucking people plan to live their life if they can't take some criticism. When you get a bad performance review at your first job are you just going to try and throw that away too? Give me a fucking break. Grow up and learn to cope with what other people have to say. Even if those other people aren't right, (I am not saying that this article was wrong) you still have to respect that fact that different people have different ideas. If you have a problem with something contact the person in charge, don't just bad mouth and trash them behind their backs. What did you think you would accomplish by throwing away all those issues?
Really, grow the fuck up.
Wow, I got really heated there... today's song of the day features the shredding ability of Eric Clapton. Enjoy:
Stay classy, not UMassy.
