How do I respond to students who are unhappy with their grade?

I'm teaching a college-level creative course, and some of my students have emailed me saying they're dissatisfied with their posted grades. These students have Bs or better. Primarily I want the students to go away, but also I'd like them to understand that a B is a pretty good grade, and that the grades reflect the quality of the students' work and participation in class. I think some students expected As because it's a creative subject and (for them) an elective. Can I just not respond to these emails, or is that an instructor faux pas?

Doomed To Sit Out?

I have a friend who is convinced, because of a combination of a breakdown of some sort and failing most of her freshman classes, that she has to sit out for something like seven years before she can go back to a University. Is this right? Is there some sort of grade forgiveness or a 'do over' button or something for getting a higher education? What's the deal? Is she forever screwed?

How to deal with college red tape?

I have a disgruntled professor whose only goal seems to burn every bridge in his path. Assignments that were turned suddenly aren't there, grades are arbitrarily assigned for no reason.
