I think we have taken this way off line. It would seem that I am not going to convince anyone who thinks that all of this is routine and a I am not going to be convinced that it does. So perhaps we should let it die.
Huh? That's exactly what you were doing, isn't it?

You were acting like the money from the sports programs meant hardly anything to the uni's and that profs were handing out grades with no pressure from above.

And wasn't grade inflation an urban myth earlier about 3 posts ago?
