Biting the hand....

There are few things more frustrating in the 'life' of a Uni director than the students that turn into monkey's, content only to throw their poo around and make life miserable for everyone else.  They come into a corp that has existed for 7 years without their amazing intellect and poo filled hands, and will continue to exist then they go flying out the door with a spiked boot print on their ass.   The part that burns us, is that despite the chances, despite the attempts to make them understand that they are only causing problems and NOT helping, they continue their march to getting their ass booted.

None of us like being the heavy, being the one to lay down the law to these people.  To explain that yes, we accept damn near everyone, that we are nice and allow them to see and say more than  most EVE corps, there are still rules and they are to be followed.  In the end, the rules actually protect the students from us.  Our original mandate allowed us to simply kick anyone that we felt was disruptive, for any reason.  Instead we work hard to provide structure, avenues of help and understanding, chances for redemption.  But there's the hard core few that piss on the hand trying to help them.  They loudly proclaim their version of things, blatantly ignoring the fact they know very little of how things really work in the Uni.  Then they bitch and whine when they're kicked about how mean and cruel we are.

Many directors are rather poor and devote all of their EVE time to the Uni.  Many of the leadership work a great deal behind the scenes, getting things done out of the sight of others and do not proclaim their actions in seeking glory or recognition of them.

In the words of our Founder, the Uni is not a democracy, it's a dictatorship.  The leaders will do what they think best for the Uni, and that path has worked for 7 years so far so I wouldn't expect any special whiny princesses to alter that path.

As for all the little ass monkey's out there, do realize that we know exactly what you're up to.
