blueboard and/or drywall

-------------------------------------------------------- I just recently had my bathroom plastered from a so-called professional. They installed blueboard on the walls until they ran out and decided to install regular drywall to finish the job. When I asked if it would stand up to moisture they said "no problem" we do it all the time. from what I understand regular drywall is NOT made to be plastered.
Is this right or should I have it all replaced? any recommendations from a REAL professional out there? --------------------------------------------------------

You are correct, they are not.

Interesting higlighting ... You tell me why- profit motive? It's still just a lamination of paper and gypsum, and you will find a variety of expert advice as to its limitations in standing up to water.
USG says, for instance: " Deterioration complaints due to water intrusion behind the ceramic tile dropped dramatically with the introduction of SHEETROCK® brand W/R Gypsum Panels. But the new product was not the full answer to water deterioration problems. If the ceramic tile grout cracks and lets water get behind the W/R gypsum panels, the W/R gypsum panels will eventually fail.
IOW, green-board may be fine for panels that cannot be gotten wet, but it is far from _the_ answer for showers/baths. As opposed to materials like Durock.
