Not every class. Some lectures have warranted applause.

In smaller lectures/meetings with clinicians, many of us make a point of thanking the presenter for their time. In a full lecture hall, that isn't always feasible.

The class ahead of me applauded lecturers halfway into the first year. My class quit doing it pretty early on- I think some of the lecturers felt hurt.

My kids do it a lot at the beginning of OMSI...it peters out as an occurrence by the end of the first year.

Yes it does, as students realize the questionable quality of many of their lectures. Getting the 5% tuition increase notice at the end of first year doesn't help anything either.

I remember it happening awkwardly a few times during orientation, but after that we only clapped for guest speakers and particularly pleasant announcements.

We have actually kind of booed at the end of a lecture... that was a bad day for sure man it was bad. Even worse than our professor digging notes out of a trash can so he could barge into our room during a test to call us all cheaters and tell us how ashamed we should be.

WCU is scary. Everything that leaks out basically says don't go there.

Scratch another troll. I wonder if they are aware that repeated trolling can lead to a complaint to their school, leading to a visit to the Professionalism folks??

Might even mean a suspension!
And you think this a good thing?

We do, we were basically told we had to because "we are in medical school". Here it's just more of a tradition I think. Kinda silly but it really isn't a big deal


And you think this a good thing?

Absolutely. Some of the recent Goro trolls have been essentially making personal threats, like the kind that end up being followed by law enforcement. Now these people probably aren't medical students but if they are then yeah they absolutely should have consequences.

Ok that is weird. I haven't been following that closely. I thought we were discussing people anonymously posting about the ****ty qualities of their school.

Yeah I don't think that is who Goro is referencing, if he were I would agree with you. There's been some weird Goro trolls lately threatening that they know who he is because of his IP address blah blah. I think that's what he is talking about.

We go to the same school. The people who keep doing this at the back left of the class are ******ed.

I gave up last week and started clapping at the end of every lecture. I sit in the third row so maybe I should look kinda interested

After looking at other threads in Goro's case most definitely-- I didn't know how out of hand it has gotten-- @Goro did you steal someone's lunch money? Haha-- I'm sorry some trolls are causing such a ruckus.
Hard to figure out the pathology of trolls. The Orangepants troll seems to have a far right-wing meme, and is probably a DO student. He's probably tormenting Muslim-Americans and trolling Facebook for Der Trumppenfuhrer right now.
