Good luck, NinjaPoodle.
We do what we have to (legally) do to get done what we have to (legally) get done.
Last year my good friend/colleague took me to lunch to meet her Research Assistant. Her RA was preparing for graduate school. Very nice person and quite the hard worker. We gave her a lot of information and she appreciated being able to add us to her professional networks. It is wonderful to have professional networks and that is especially the case for women and racial and ethnic minorities (all 3 of us are Black/African American women). Two weeks ago my friend and I received an email from this student for her graduate school fundraiser. After I remembered who she was, I contacted my friend to get her thoughts. We were both surprised to have been put on the list of recipients since we were not personally close to her and we had not heard from this student in quite a few months. Needless to say, neither of us received our degrees during a time when there was a such thing as Online Tuition Fundraisers/Campaigns. Needless to say2, this made us both a bit uncomfortable and we did not donate. I participate in fundraisers for things like Race for the Cure but I find online fundraisers/campaigns for tuition to be a bit strange. That is especially the case when people are left wondering why they are on the recipient list.
I am sick of GreekChat, but not sick enough to leave. Just sick enough to be a thorn in the side of the moderators until the heavy-handedness stops.

What the world needs is more geniuses with humility, there are so few of us left.
