And why should important people have to stay home? If everyone is considerate of everyone else, there's no need. And you say 3 hours, but what about 4,5 or 6. If everyone does what these people did then that's what larger schools are facing.
You're creating false choices in an attempt to accommodate these types of people. I think it's much easier to have everyone respect those around them.
That's a classic strawman. No one is saying they shouldn't cheer. Just don't stop the ceremony. It's not the hard.
Kind of like the student in question huh? Inconsiderate and selfish? For cheering a kid? Sorry, I ain't buying that argument. Why won't turning up the PA solve the problem. You'd hear names. That's what you're griping about. If they are 6 hours long, split the graduations in half. That's what colleges do, graduate by "school". I do notice the rest of the crowd has to be considerate for you.
