UPDATE, 1/10/2020, 8:25am: I have removed the spoof posts and have re-opened the board. All comments will now require moderator approval by me before they post to the board, so If you don't see your comment right away after you post it, that's because it is awaiting approval. I will receive a notification when someone has posted so you don't need to communicate with me after submitting a comment.
UPDATE, 1/10/2020, 7:58am: So there are a lot of spoof comments on the board right now, some from people pretending to be me, so I'm closing the board until I can purge those comments, and, when it re-opens, I will be directly moderating and approving all comments.
The online comments for this discussion will follow the same format as previous discussions: ONE original post and THREE follow-up posts are required for all students. If you were absent you need to post 15 points worth of additional comments, each comment is worth 3 points. ALL comments need to be original (don't repeat yourself) and reply comments must be more than "I agree..." then a restatement of the original post to which you are responding. All comments are due by Monday, January 13, 10:00 pm.
