    It could be a lot worse: your name could be spelled wrong. :smile:

    Or, you could be accused of teaching your students Nazism/bigotry:
    And, to make that thread even stupider: my family is interracial, I am of Jewish heritage, I don't have students, and I'm not an instructor. Sheesh.

    Don't worry about it. Most people tend to respect others who act human as opposed to those who try to act invincible. Besides, I suspect many felt your initial posting style was more because you were set off by the preconceived notions regarding the gentleman in the wheelchair.

    I feel you explained what goes on at your school quite well even through your expressed umbrage/idiocy. All you did by clarifying your frame of mind is let people know more about yourself, your school, and why you might be slightly more than touchy than usual.

    By the way, you may want to make review listing for your school:

    From Bill's postings in various threads, #3 is an entirely moot point since it appears he is already well above board in this department.
