I actually avoid answering those 99.9% of the time. Every so often, however, there's a question I feel I'd like to answer. Did one today, but it was the first one in many months.

Utah State has 816 licensed prelicensed instructors out of 21,706 licensees total for the State.

I suspect many are online schools. They want us to do home work since instructors are not available.  The instructors probaby earn AR pts referring students to this site.

Together they ask students to ask AR. Wait they get the license work with a client and say let me put you on hold by asking one of my ambassadors or nice rainers.

One way to stop this nonsense is give a stupid answer so they can go away.

More important - why does anyone waste time worrying about how other people are wasting their time? This nonsense from Utah is taking way too much time!

I'm trying to shame them into responding or exposing that they are not getting what they paid for.

The instructor/professor has been upping her engagment very slightly.

David,

I don't answer the anonymous one.  I don't see the value of singling out Utah, as I have seen some from other states, and overall, I like Michael Jacobs  answer.  A

I don't comment on faceless posters. I think if someone joins a network such as this, the minimum they can do is upload a profile photo.
