George's description of his dissertation deserves to rise to a position of supremacy.

It's probably no surprise that there hasn't been much action at dlwhatever recently. It's just got to be really difficult to keep posting when you've got nothing to say. Added to that, they're probably both out doing their Christmas shopping. Remember, when you're buying those new mittens the preferred color is teal. 8)

This thread started January 2007. We're quickly approaching the two year anniversary. I don't understand why people keep reviving it every every few months but perhaps I'll give it a bump in January for laughs.

As we approach the first of January that might have to get my vote as the post of the year. :lol:

I enjoy their site – they have taken on the role of the paparazzi and tabloid journalists of distance education. I do not think they take themselves too seriously, look at their choice of screen names, and it is only a matter of time before we see a “Bat Boy enrolls in…” headline there. However, they have done something no other board has done – they made some of the regular posters on sites like this one into mini-celebrities of distance education (if such a thing is possible). I also feel they have furthered the cause of distance education by driving more people to the other sites than away from them – who would not want to visit the sites they savage given the various headlines they post concerning the regular contributors? I think that we need to appreciate their board for what it is – satire.

It is an intriguing hypothesis, Denver, but I think that publishing George Gollin's social security number and other personal information, and brutally harassing his teenage daughter, goes well beyond the limits of what might be called satire.

There is more going on.
Some businesses are hurt as a result of sites like this and they are looking for retaliation and possible ways to silence some individuals on sites like this.
Harassment is one tactic of many, the less know persons who post here and on other sites are been followed and maybe targeted for retaliation. One friend of my suspected that he was followed by people connected to credential evaluation service in CA State because they lost some oversea clients due to postings about them. As he was walking from a meeting in the school where his daughter is attending a man followed him and another waited on the corner of the street. He used his phone to take pictures and he went to local police and also contacted FBI. He is no longer visiting or posting on boards.

Thanks, John and Eric, for putting paid to the stupidest, morally blindest post I have ever seen on DD.

I notice that there are now more posts devoted to my work suppressing illegal degree providers than to the activities of any of the other higher education professionals/experts/aficionados that are celebrated there.

I am also pleased to note that copies of my PhD thesis (as well as a preprint of the Physical Review D article drawn from it) are also available over there. It is satisfying to realize that the four or five people who frequent that discussion forum will be able to learn about early tests of quantum chromodynamics. Continuing education through reading and self-study is a great thing.
