    It's not a matter of fair; it's human nature to judge others.

    It is not fair to judge anyone on anything unless one is willing to debate.

    Prior to debate, it has not been established that the person doing the judging, moderating or censoring, has authority on the subject to do so.

    This can only be ascertained when a group has heard both parties present their cases, counter cases, and debunks.

    Only then can a relatively reliable opinion be made upon ones level of schooling and the ill effects.

    Any comment or opinion made before this process is complete, is simply an arrogant and unsubstantiated unprofessional and non academic opinion.

    On the otherhand, if you are simply talking about bad behaviour, then you are mostly judged upon how you are "right now".

    People can "see" approximately who you are, simply by looking at you.

    Your high school history will only be an issue, if they think they can still see a lot of it still lurking in you "now".

    "... based on their high school history."

    A person should be evaluated by what he currently is and on his recent past.  If the person is 20, his high school years are in his recent past. If the person is 40, the 20 years after high school has either changed her or ossified her in her high school ways.

    Judging others is natural. By comparing others to oneself, it creates a barometer that reflects our own successes/failures.

    Whether or not it's "fair" shouldn't be part of the issue. People who don't like to be judged usually have a history of events that they're not proud of.

    We all have this to a degree but most people aren't bothered by it so much that they feel offended.

    You make your own successes/failures in life, and so it's up to you to ensure that what you've done in the past is something you can feel good about. You can't change the past, so you have to keep in mind that your mistakes and failures follow wherever you go.

    It depends on what it was. I believe in forgiveness but sometimes things could be a problem.

    it depends how old they are. If they just finished high school then yes, but people continue to learn and grow after high school, so they could be very different years later.
