"Well, duh. If I’m treated like an empty bucket dependent on
benevolent sources of knowledge to swoop down and fill me and program
me like a robot, of course I’m not going to come alive."

I think that's disrespectful of educators. If you were asking my
opinion if this post should run in the EDU channel, than my answer
would be "no." I personally see adversarial posts like this as adding
nothing whatsoever to the dialog, and actually being
counterproductive.

Cheers,
Matt
