Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, no, the grad students were always the hardliners at FSU.  The tenured professors, who had "seen it all," were the easy-going ones.  But we were a fairly mature group, and we gave high marks to professors and assistants/grads based on how well they actually taught the material -- not on whether we liked them as people.  But you're right about the fear of evaluations.  Schools shouldn't place so much emphasis on those.  My classmates in political science were mainly spoiled brats who chose it as their major only because they couldn't decide on anything else, and, if I had taught those classes as a grad student, I, too, would've lived in fear of evaluations.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
