    Opposite of "sausage fest"?

    Probably something like "gash party". :awesome:

    1. Dunno.

    2. The people who started the group are idiots, obviously.

    3. Likely.

    4. For death threats, whether they are likely to be carried out or not, I'd say they got off lightly with a suspension.

    5. Could be a controversial subject to talk about. I mean, yes, what they do on their Facebooks or whatever should be relatively private, but death threats? Going a bit far really, so I'd say they deserve everything they get for it. *shrugs*

    Needless death threats coming from idiots on Facebook... another day in an angsty teens' life.
    :yes:

    The funny thing is that around 20mins after reading the article, in our lesson a peer of mine got threatened with exclusion for calling our teacher a ******** on facebook which i thought was a scary coincidence. Hes next status was lyrics from some emo song - say no to emo :woo:

    not sure the opposite term for a sausage fest
    Taco fest




    do not listen to all these fools - i am well versed in such matters and i deem it to be called a taco fest; fish market was a nice proposal but does not serve as the antithesis of sausage fest.

    Exactly, teachers should be banned from Facebook.

    So...the girls were annoyed and made a facebook group about how annoyed they were to the extent of making death threats. Stupid...yes but I wouldn't say suspension was particularly fair! I mean don't a lot of people say I'm going to kill such and such but it's just when they're really annoyed and they never actually truly mean it. Messing with students year 11 prom is never a good idea...it's really important to a lot of people, particularly girls.

    My boyfriend made a copy of his school's website when he was in sixth form basically making a mockery of the school. He's hard-working, conscientious and a good student so you'd think they'd know he would never mean anything personally/seriously but they still suspended him. They threatened to get the police involved but decided it would be better to just get him working alongside the IT department helping them.

    I very highly doubt that this is true. They'd be under obligation to tell you that they're installed for a start, and accessing your account would be against the law, under the Computer Misuse Act, regardless of how the login information was obtained.

    OP, whilst I agree that the reason for the creation of the Group was trivial, and that it was conducted outside of school, I think that the school were quite justified in their actions.

    School is a place to learn and develop, and they wouldn't be carrying out their full responsibility if they didn't take an interest into what their pupils and students are doing outside of school. Not that people should be stalked 24/7, but when something like this happens, the parents don't seem to be doing anything, it's not really against the law, but they need to be taught a lesson - albeit not an academic lesson.

    Death threats are extreme. I doubt the pupils actually meant them, but if they're not taken seriously, what happens if they're real? Teachers have the right to work in a safe environment, free from fear, intimidation and abuse. You can imagine how long it would've taken for say, half of the school, to be members of that Group, and how the teacher would suffer. Although still, context remains to be seen.

    Of course, my initial reaction to the teacher would probably be, "man up", it's still unfair and unjust.

    It's featured in your local newspaper probably because it's 20x more interesting than the date of the next Church coffee morning, to the average reader at least.

    Ours had the whole 'Teacher can see what you're doing on your computer and they can log you off and stuff'...

    On a side not we made a group about throwing our Economics teacher down a well and got ~200 people to join...nothing happened.
