This blog is maintained by the Pennsylvania Division of the American Association of University Professors (PA-AAUP). While, in the interest of academic freedom, we wish this blog to be open to all, we cannot post items that are destructive, libelous, violent, or hateful in nature. This afternoon a message was posted which suggested that the Penn State computers should be crashed. That message was blocked by us. It is difficult to assess what violence would have been done to Penn State and its employees and students by such an action, but any would have been too much. Please respect that we stand for academic freedom and that that, in and of itself, means that we will not post items that would restrict others’ freedoms.
