Exactly. Madkid's original rant which sparked a reasonably large thread was that the 10AM due time for HW5 which was not reiterated in the classroom for all sections resulted in a large proportion of students to miss submitting the HW on time.
It was the first week after break for an assignment that came out before break. A reminder was not unreasonable for such an unusual due time for an electronically submitted assignment.
My grade did drop 1/2 a letter grade (A- to B+) specifically because of the zero this HW netted me. I'm not tossing blame, but as the thread went, "Madkid's got a point..."
