Opinion: Message to Baruch College about yet another student trying to pick a fight with me.


Greetings Baruch College,

A student wrote something negative about me in a class chat.

I have no idea who the student is. 

I don’t know the student’s name. 

I quickly glanced at it.

I ignored it as always. I can care less if a student pours a can of paint on my head, I’m not going to react.

I can care less if a student walks up to me in school and does anything to me I’m not going to react. 

This is why I’m respectfully suing Baruch College to try and be excused from having to interact with students. I love Baruch College, there is no animosity attached to the lawsuit. 

There is no other way to be excused from having to interact with students besides the courts. I’m not mentioning the lawsuit to any of my professors. 

It’s not fair to have to keep taking abuse from students without at least trying to protect my privacy. 

The only exception is if I go back to work for RF CUNY in the library. Hopefully, there are security cameras in the library. The RF CUNY money is too good to turn down, plus it’s mandatory from HRA. 

I keep having students, since LaGuardia Community College, that I have no idea who they are, that I never said one word to, trying to pick fights with me. I ignore them all. 

People I know pay the NYPD and their civilian team to physically attack me, sabotage me, ambush me, steal and destroy my property regularly including yesterday. I don’t react to the NYPD and their vicious civilian team. I’m certainly not reacting to anyone at Baruch College trying to pick a fight with me.

Again, I’m not taking a screen picture of the person talking about me in the class chat because I don’t want any record of the person’s name. 

I can care less. The worst thing I can do to people trying to pick fights with me is to ignore them. 

You told me to deal with you and you only about these types of situations. 

There has never been one person who named someone else in the chat in any of my zoom classes to try and start an argument besides this one person, that I have no clue who it is, against me. 

The professor asked for our opinions about a topic. I gave a completely noncontroversial answer like always. The next person starts writing that I’m wrong and mentioning me by name in the chat which is totally inappropriate. They could just give their opinion, they didn’t have to mention me. 

I don’t want to jinx it but I’m doing amazing this semester. I don’t care if I get all C’s but with a little luck I might end up on the Dean’s List. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
