No one hates me enough to say anything bad on my RateMyProfessor.com entry, and just yesterday, I received the following comment: “If you suck at writing, take this professor and he’ll help you!” That feels good. Sadly, my name is still listed as Gideons (missing e) in there, and that’s really annoying.
mtvU, the off-shoot of MTV especially for college students (which now owns RateMyProfessor.com), has started a site called Pos or Not. It’s sorta like Hot or Not except that you have to guess if someone is HIV+. At first, I was utterly freaked out by it — I mean: Dude! — but then I realized it was simply a particularly wacky method of getting kids to learn about HIV and AIDS.
