    There is a very big difference between:

    "Put him at the front of the room, *sshole."

    and what I posted.

    Sheesh.  Accusing me of discrimination is just plain stupid.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

    •  Your comment was not aggressive... (1+ / 0-)

      ... but it seemed unsympathetic and judgemental. Maybe I shouldn't have jumped into the middle of this, but I felt bad for the teacher.

        I would hope that technology would/does provide better options

        I articulated sadness that a suitable location for the student in question was not available.

        Sigh.

        Is English your first language?

        I feel bad for the teacher, too.  And Rec'd the response accordingly.

        You threw down the gauntlet:

        I feel your reaction is just as cold-hearted, and basically unthinking, as any discrimination might be.

        The rules prevent me from HRing you for that.  But you certainly would deserve a 1 or 2 (in DK2 parlance) for such a crappy comment.

        Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

          polecat, Heart of the Rockies

          From having seen Heart of the Rockies own response to you, I guess I understand now that you were sharing frustration that there was no logistical solution to the problem.

          I was coming from having read another thread where somebody was honest about their difficulties in accomodating the special needs of a deaf person, and seeing that person get jumped on.

          So I misinterpreted you.  I did think you were taking Heart of the Rockies to task for not trying hard enough.

          I apologize.

          •  No problem. Nuance doesn't make it here. (1+ / 0-)

            Wanna see a REAL flame war?  Go to the religion one on the wreck list.

            Not quite as ugly as an I/P diary, but it is up there.

            Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
