While Avery Doninger was banned from school office, another student who called Schwartz a dirty whore was given an award and lauded for citizenship.
Life lesson #482:
Nobody wants to be called a d-bag, but even a school administrator likes to be called a "dirty whore" every now and then.

This case isn't about the term douche bag - it's about an incredibly broad application of the "potential to cause disruption" standard. How, under these facts could the blog post have the potential to cause disruption when no one even found out about it until 2 weeks later when the incident had blown over? Under this standard, Harriet the Spy would have been kicked out of school for writing nasty things about her classmates in her private journal since those communications also had potential to cause disruption. This case is insane and as I wrote at Blogwatch, the administrators acted like a bunch of bullies.
