U.S. Campus Culture Brigham Young professors were largely unbothered after they were included on a list of teachers to "avoid." Published anonymously on the Righteous Dominion blog Sunday, the list predominately targeted professors for their political views and opinions about the LGBTQ+ community and President Donald Trump. Over the years, several websites published names of professors for their perceived biases, lists that garnered national attention, support and criticism. When it came to the recent BYU list, the professors defended themselves against the criticisms and were joined by many who praised them for being quality educators. Dale Cressman, the associate director for Student Learning and a Communications professor, told Newsweek on Tuesday he knew a few of the people on the list and was “honored” to be among them. He even wondered why he was listed as No. 7 and not No. 1. As for the blog, he categorized it as … [Read more...] about BYU Professors Dismiss Anonymous Blog’s List of Professors to Avoid

Mercury Staff We recently published a very helpful list of the Portland employees you should be tipping on the regular. Unfortunately, we forgot about one. From "Cheap Ass Cone Lickers" on the I, Anonymous Blog. I am tired of you cone lickers out there who come into my ice cream shop, taste a lot of flavors, get your scoop, and refuse to tip. You probably have no fucking clue how hard we actually work and how much our wrists hurt just to scoop up your precious fucking chocolate waffle cone. You tip your bartenders, right? Well we do just as much as they do except we get you wasted on sugar. Don't come in and demand to try everything and leave my tip jar unloved. It's mostly the people who CAN afford to tip who are the ones who don't. Take your cheap ass out of my shop until you can summon up some gratitude to us for breaking our wrists so you can have your miserable date night. Fucking cone lickers. And an extra precious FUCK YOU to the guy who put $20 in my tip jar just to take it out … [Read more...] about The I, Anonymous Blog Quote o’ the Day: Cheap Ass Cone Lickers
Democracy is hard. And yet, it's even harder for certain members of society, such as this person from the I, Anonymous Blog who is really, really upset about voting and STAMPS. WTF! I have to buy a stamp to mail in my ballot??? America continues to make it difficult for Americans to vote. Unless you're OLD. Meaning you probably write checks and avoid debit cards. Who has stamps just lying around!? Only old people (mostly white). Another way for America to hide it's true identity. The majority of Americans are not OLD WHITE PEOPLE! Make voting easy! Don't send a huge booklet of measures (hidden agendas) and a bunch of BS policy that only highlights the same ol' song and dance. Whether you're a Democrat or Republican, it's the same shit, just a different socio economic status. Make voting digital! Maybe have a day where you can text your vote in or something that's more engaging with people and technology. Oregon, I'm calling you out first! Do something that doesn't always make our state … [Read more...] about The I, Anonymous Blog Quote o’ the Day: Make It Easier for Me to Vote, Goddamit!
Treachery comes in all shapes and sizes—and in this case, treachery has taken the form of taking a bite out of each of the break room's doughnuts. From the I, Anonymous Blog: I took a gigantic bite out of each doughnut which our main industrial supplies vendor left for you, then I re-boxed them neatly and left them next to the coffee pot for you to discover. I spit the un-chewed bites into the trash next to the coffee pot—and I'm glad you actually saw them! Because of this, you had an OCD fueled, managerial meltdown... the likes of which I've never seen! After wasting several days on a maintenance staff inquisition, it’s a pity your lengthy investigation process was so completely fruitless! In the 10 months that have passed since this happened, you have not passed up an opportunity to express your rage about this, even when the opportunity had to be manufactured. Your tales of treachery at the coffee pot sound like bitter tears of defeat to me, and they taste so … [Read more...] about The I, Anonymous Blog Submission o’ the Day: Treachery at the Coffee Pot!
