Vote for Professor X

It's award time! The GSB has asked us the students to vote our favorite professor. As such, I voted for Ann McGill, my marketing teacher, whose wit and humor made marketing an interesting subject. Anyway, this blog is not about who to vote for...

I received an email a while ago from a student group that urged me to vote for a certain professor. Since I did not take this particular professor's class, I had no such intent and promptly deleted the email. Then I got another. Same group, same email, same professor. And another. And another.

And then... same group, same email, different professor! This time, the writer of the email indicates that you can vote for two different professors for two different awards. So you can split your votes between the two awards.

Now I'm just annoyed. I have no doubt that these two professors are good. But the student group email is not a place for rallying votes or spliting votes. I signed up for that student group for specific purposes, not for junk mail. Especially not for junk mail that games the voting system.

But... you can do it on a blog. I'm not going to ask you to vote for Ann McGill... but do take her marketing class if you have a chance. It's a fun time and you do learn some useful tools.

I agree. It's so annoying!! He even wrote something at the end saying "if you are not voting for xxx, I won't forgive you". What a jerk! Who needs your forgiveness!! Stupid!

Wow -- that is odd. I have not gotten any such emails from student groups. Very surprising. I wonder who is doing this...hmm...

I wish I had waited to take McGill.
