    staahr.at.MUA stands for:

    STudents And Advocates for Honest Reform at MUA…Pronounced "star".

    The purpose of staahr is to promote these honest and forthright exchanges that have recently surfaced on VMD concerning MUA. The imperative to continue such exchanges has a solid foundation for true reform. Please check your history from all cultures to confirm this statement.

    Yes, this is a “newbie” posting, but the personal account has actually been canceled to pursue this anonymous posting venue.

    Why? The feeling of some may be a reflection of many. This is not a certainty, nor is this post meant to purport that certainty. People talk, and people at MUA talk to each other…simple fact, right? So, why not give a cohesive voice to those talks?

    “staahr” has been formed by students and advocates. The idea is that students and advocates should have a choice on how to post concerns, questions, affirmations, and deformation (if need be). It is no secret that the dean of MUA is a constant gardener (monitor) of all post. So, send your post to staahr via PM and staahr will post your concerns to the dean or the forum as a whole…makes no difference.

    The important point is everyone should have a fair say and not feel like they are being scrutinized by authority figures. This whole business is sort of like your MOM looking through your personal journal; even if you didn’t say anything about her you still don’t want her reading it!!! Yeah, yeah, yeah…public forum…that is not being dismissed here, but actually encouraged, with your anonymity secured!!

    What “staahr” will do for the students is lend a filter for free exchange. Please understand that this exchange will have to comply with VMDs TOS…none of us can escape that. However, many of the recent posters are under scrutiny. Get out from under that burden and PM staahr. Staahr will take your ideas and post them exactly as said, or, should they be flaming, eliminate the flaming element (with the poster’s approval) and post under staahr.

    A revolution has been started…the tail is wagging the dog right now. The students have the Dean’s attention (the dean is the dog…we are the tail). Let’s use this opportunity as a step forward and not be bogged down by rhetoric propagated by a nominal influence…which it all has been to date.

    Keep posting my fellow [FONT='Calibri','sans-serif']colleagues[/font]…move forward on change, be honest on your post and use staahr as your filter when need be…

    Sincerely,

    A rising staahr

    It is not acceptable for users to share a screenname. Users are permitted ONE screen name to post under. Failure to comply will lead to bans of ALL of a users accounts.

    Further, I encourage you to think: most schools have officials reading this site. that MUA has a Dean doing so transparently should not make you more wary simply because you happen to be aware of it. Would you prefer to be "monitored" in silence? Remember: this site is available for free exchange- this includes school officials. if you cant figure out how to post professionally, id suggest there are bigger concerns at hand.

    it is off topic but needless to say the different mechanisms by which VMD admin does this is not something they plan to discuss.
