Why don't you go tell this to someone who cares? If the situation at pr's
university is soooooo bad, why doesn't he/she just move? Certainly, someone
with all of pr's talents can find gainful employment somewhere else. Perhaps
pr has been out looking to move to another university, and no place else is
interested. I wonder why such might be the case... Maybe pr's overhead return
won't even cover his/her connection fees to the internet for this gratuitous
Hey, pr, listen carefully: We don't care to hear any more of your twaddle.
It's a waste of bandwidth.
