I'm somewhat concerned about my detractors. When I first started this blog and received negative comments, they were pretty uniform and well organized. Apparently, the various apologists for the law school industry had their stock answers well prepared - possibly from their days of dealing with Loyola2L and Law is 4 Loser as well as angry commenters on other forums.
Sadly, as I've received more e-mails, comments, and attention on other forums, thanks to some of the recent publicity, my critics have become less disciplined and have been omitting parts from the script.
Such TTT quality criticism really is a shame. Therefore, as a sign of good will, I'm going to provide all of my condemners with the definitive stock anti-Esq. Never comment. I'll even provide you with the URL for this specific post, so you can just refer me to it when voicing your displeasure. In fact, I'll even forgo giving a rebuttal or any commmentary on the sample retort.
You are a whiner. That's why you have been unsuccessful so far. You deserve your fate because of the bad decisions YOU made and continue to make.
Law schools are businesses. Their "distorted" statistics are merely part of their marketing campaigns. You should have done more research before attending and borrowing so much money.
Even if the employment/salary statistics are not accurate, there are still plenty of great opportunities for law school graduates. You just don't want to pay your dues. Your mediocre (at best) credentials certainly don't mean anybody owes you anything. You just think you're entitled to a six figure salary and only care about money.
Why don't you stop whining and find a job? If you spent less time blogging and creating animated videos on Youtube, you'd already probably have one.
You're a nerd, a loser, ugly, and probably gay.

As a postscript: Law school apologists of all stripes, I understand that this week has been a bit difficult for you guys. There's been at least three major articles urging students to think very carefully before deciding to go through with the decision to attend law school. The impetus for those articles have been this site and others like it.
While the recent publicity may have allowed us to help pluck a few naive prospective students from the flames, there's plenty of good news for you. LSAT administrations are up, and application numbers will likely be up too. Don't worry, you may have lost a victim or two, but there's plenty more where they came from to keep the government backed loans flowing in.
