Actually, I was the one who gave his posting a 0, then I modded it up to a 5 when someone complained. I'm actually kinda amused that getting modded down makes you "disillusioned" about K5. I modded this article up for you. ;-)
I don't rate peoples' postings often, but it was pretty much a trolling that was meant to be a trolling.
No, I don't care if anyone disagrees with me... and I certainly wouldn't post an article about it if they disagreed with me... and if I did, I would use my real name so that people would know I wasn't a troll.
>my reply was to a statement that said co-op jobs are worthless
Regardless of your misinterpreting my words (which you have; I said that you should not use them solely for resume-building purposes), the following is your response you're basing this article on:
>What? What a load of crap. Maybe if you give co-op students working for
>you jobs other than "coffee wench" you might discover that co-op students
>actually come with valuable skills!
...from someone named "GreenCrackBaby".
This appears to me like a trolling from my perspective because I was an intern several times, and developed CTS because one employer exploited my skills and fired me when I became injured from doing the work. It was my naivity as a student not being able to say "no" and the heavy-handedness of my employer that caused it. I felt it was nothing less than criminal because I ended up being disabled at 18. The attitude repeated in your posting is one that I consciously try to avoid every single day.
I mean, what is wrong with just asking, "Hey, why do you have this perspective?" That's what I would have done.
