someone has an unresolved anger issue.

name calling is never really very effective in argumentation.

It was effective enough to prompt a smarmy, pedantic response from you, was it not?

Gotcha!

Now go apply for your New Orleans university scab job.

Re the accusation of scabbing: that applies only to union situations, when strikebreakers take the jobs of fired regular workers.

That hasn't happened in New Orleans.

Xavier is the only school that fired all the faculty and then rehired some of them. Xavier is non-union.

If you want to do name-calling, at least get the names right.

OK, you can stick with the textbook interpretation of what I meant by scabbing or you can consider it more broadly as --- the replacement of longstanding, competent, quality workers by less skilled "fill in" workers desperately in need of jobs.

Are you even sure that what you describe is happening? If so, give information instead of rants.

I beg to differ. Pay at LSU was already among the lowest in the region; I am leaving because I got a better offer. Not at all nervous---just the smart thing to do. And yes, I'm in humanities.

Good for you, not nervous. We don't need people who don't love Louisiana.

OP provided a simple response to your uncalled-for insult. Hardly smarmy or pedantic.

You obviously have huge stress related anger and perhaps, some grieving to do regarding your loss of and in N.O.

The OP was asking for advice, not insults.
