Oh, and just so you don't think I'm an uptight teetotaler trying to parent you on drinking, I'll let you know that I've had to deal with my own alcohol habits after coming face-to-face with a DUI.
It just takes one run-in with the law to change your perspective on how much you drink and how you act when you do.

I think in the interest of full disclosure, and to make your argument stronger, you would need to share what it was that got you kicked out, regardless of the manager/owner siding with you and letting you back in the establishment.
While you are right that the code of conduct isn't posted in each and every bar in Auburn, there is a reason for it: common sense. But common sense, despite its name, is usually subjective. What might make sense to you might not make sense to others.
I think there is one telling point in your comments. When you ask, "How are we as a student body supposed to follow rules that are not stated when we are intoxicated?" you raise a point that many people don't understand about bars: you don't go to them to get intoxicated. There is a huge difference between having a couple of drinks to unwind from the day and blowing a wad of cash to get hammered. While bars appreciate your patronage, they're not wanting to you come in and spend your last dollar. That's just bad business - they want you to keep coming back to spend money.
So maybe you should reconsider your standards for consumption. The next you go out, don't get drunk and you'll be less likely to violate an "unwritten rule."

Will there be any tickets for the general public?

I would ask the writer if she grew up in a time when students walked across a street without looking first and one's vanity wasn't the most important issue of their daily life.
Ms Anthony, you might as well face the truth. In these "changing times", the importance of how one looks on the outside is more than the importance of how one looks on the inside. The emphasis on vanity and showing it off in a public setting (such as a new student act) is only going to get worse.
I voted no for the Student Act because I didn't want my tuition to increase any more than it had to, even if it was a small amount. I also believe it is important to stay fit but I don't understand why people can't do it at home or a private gym.
As far as funding The Plainsman, good luck with that. The print and online version is written by people who probably never write in cursive and when they do write, they use SMS language.
That being said, I would also vote "no" to fund The Plainsman with tuition dollars.

Another good dark beer is Chimay, made by Trappist monks in Belgium. So far, it's the best dark beer I have tried.

That's been my theory behind the sign-in requirement. They want to "select" their criticism.

i also love how they are now requiring people to sign in so they can then delete your profile when you start talking bad about them too much.......

this year has been a disaster for the plainsman....It really saddens me to see Auburn's hard work ruined with coverage like this
most of these young adults deserve a better place to showcase their work...not some cast aside web project gone wrong that somebody got tired of keeping up with
