    Apparently he took an honorable mention in a 2010 essay competition for the university.

    The essay was a critical analysis of an art portrait of a woman.

    There is always a certain something about a woman that attracts a man. Thirty-four years ago, it was my wife-to-be’s captivating smile that compelled my securing an introduction and her telephone number, despite the presence of her date at the bar at the time. While “Woman” isn’t smiling, she has an intriguing look of wistfulness that remains timelessly captivating. Every man has seen this look on the face of a woman he loves: grandmother, mother, sister, lover, wife or girlfriend. How a man comes to terms with this look reveals aspects of his character. Perhaps some will find this museum-induced introspection uncomfortable; I find it an emotional delight and a call for compassion.


    In other news, I read in a different article that his wife is defending his position against the university.

    Umm, what? Who said he committed a crime? I don't think anyone is saying he should go to prison. He just shouldn't be allowed back into class because he can't behave himself.

    I thought a crime is an action that deems punishment, no?

    When child tells a lie and his parents punish him, is he/she a criminal?

    I think you should do a little research as to what a crime actually is.

    Okay, I should have been more specific. I thought a crime was an actioned deemed punishable by law. If law authorities have to intervene in a situation and give punishment, it is a crime, right?

    That's not always a crime, either. Read this wiki and see if that helps.

    As far as I can tell, this guy hasn't broken any laws, so he hasn't been charged with any crime (though I suppose if he persisted, he could eventually be charged with criminal harassment/stalking). He has, at the very least, broken some unwritten social rules with his conduct. He might have even broken some written rules of conduct at the school. Breaking those rules is not a crime, though, so the police wouldn't get involved. The most the school can do is tell him he is no longer welcome (ban him from campus). And that's exactly what they've done.

    Okay, I must have read the OP wrong. I thought a court was involved. Either way, my intended message is the same: Just because someone doesn't act socially acceptable in a way that does not violate any written rules, doesn't mean that there should be punishment.

    Why, because we get strong feelings for something even before we know all the details? I mean, the first post I made was my immediate reaction to the OP. It's not like I was aware of the other facts yet.

    Right, it's like dealing with my three year old toddler.

    Ignore their tantrum, and eventually they'll start using their grown up words to communicate.
