Re: [science303] Do FJCs still make any attempt at all to teach students common sense in regards to site burning / ethics? [In reply to] Can't Post

We have an ethics discussion/video/lecture in every Fundamentals course. It usually runs about an hour long, and is generally done on the last day (day 4) of the course.

Keep in mind that no instructor can control a students behavior after a course is over, so no matter what was in the course, different students will behave differently afterward.

No ethics without consequences.

In reply to:
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.
