No, getting rude won't change your grade

The rude, homophobic ethics student sent another e-mail bomb.

Clearly, I haven't taught her anything, as her third e-mail was just as non-persuasive as the first. Poor dear, the thinks that demaning that I change a grade is going to get her someplace.

I did her a favor by specifically telling her that I needed everything by Wednesday at noon. She turned in her papers 24 hours late and expected not to take a penalty. The nerve ---

Of course, had she come to class and/or contributed to class discussion when she did show up, I may have had a reason to raise her grade. As it is -- a third rude request isn't going to do it.
