How differently universities behave when the world is watching. I’m troubled by the anonymity of charges made at noindoctrination.org. I understand the argument for such anonymity, given the climate of intimidation and retribution on today’s campuses, but I believe in individual courage and transparency. Nonetheless, the website’s invitation to rebuttal, sent to every party accused of unfairness, is both an open call for candor and a model that can serve a very salutary purpose, as seen in this exchange. Let the debates continue.
