Hell hath no fury like a schemer scammed

In a fascinating article: Rioting in China Over Label on College Diplomas - New York Times, students are in an uproar because their diplomas will bear the name of the lesser college they actually attended instead of the better college (with which the lesser school is affiliated) whose reputation they paid to acquire. Reputation is everything, and they are not doing much for the reputation of Zhengzhou University Shengda Economic, Trade and Management College by rioting. Of course they feel frustration, but they were trying to buy something they could not earn (the students paid extra for the lower ranked (and presumably less rigorous) school, but could not gain admittance to the better school).
