Re: [science303] Do FJCs still make any attempt at all to teach students common sense in regards to site burning / ethics?

To add insult to injury, it turned out to be an object pretty much literally in my backyard, which I had been scoping for a while now.
...Well, that doesn't really sound like your object. You're a jumper, it's an object, it's almost literally in your backyard, you haven't jumped it yet. This guy is sessioning it. Good on 'em.
My FJC included ethics. I don't approve of dayblazing shared objects. However, when I went home after my FJC, my discretion was low and my sending it level was high, but I was the only jumper in several hundred miles. Is there a chance this guy thinks there's no other jumpers around?
I'd suggest you introduce yourself. Give him a bit of the benefit of the doubt, or at least tolerance for a new and dumb jumper, and help enlighten him on our shared ethics, and your regional do's and dont's. You might be able to help prevent a further issue, like burning an object you actually jump, or a safety issue a new, overenthusiastic jumper is more likely to miss. Aww shit, you might even make a friend, you have so much in common.
