Going Viral on Criticizing Wake Forest Law Librarians
"Someone — claiming to be a Wake Forest law student, and calling himself or herself 'Wes Law' — apparently woke up this morning with a bug up the ass. The object of pain was apparently the law librarians at Wake Law. And so the supposed student asked a rhetorical question: 'Is there someone who can please explain why do we even have librarians at this law school anymore, and to what purpose they serve?'” writes ATL's Elie Mystal in Purported Wake Forest Law Student Slams Wake Forest Law Librarians ("You know an email has gone viral when we get unsolicited emails asking us to not post something we just received from a bunch of people all at the same time.").
Elie's post deconstructs the text of "Wes Law's" email and caps it all off with this comment:
If you want to bitch at somebody, complain about the decision makers, not the freaking library workers.
Thanks Elie. [JH]
Actually, I love the fact that he complains about the fact that the librarians aren't helping him, and then claims that librarians are obsolete. Um... if we're so freaking obsolete, then why do you need our help?

I was really hoping LLB would be classy enough to not dignify ATL's coverage of this, but I guess I was wrong.
