Mike Adams

Hello Clifton. It is nice to hear from you. I just received your email, which follows in its entirety:

Dear Mike S. Adams,

On your web site you are using my copyrighted material from my web site (and misrepresenting it) without my permission.  The material is meant for my professional work only.  Stop using it now.

Thank you.

Clifton Snider, Ph.D.

I understand that you are quite upset with me over my recent article, entitled ?Shut up and teach.? Being exposed as an ideological bigot isn?t much fun, is it? It is especially disheartening when you have been bullying helpless college students and finally encounter an opponent that you cannot control. That would be me.

Before I get off topic, I have a few questions. In your email, you refer to the California State University, Long Beach website as ?your? website. How much did it cost you to buy the public university website? I assume that you are telling the truth when you say that www.csulb.edu is ?your? website. You must be a very wealthy man. I didn?t know that ?queer literary critics? made so much money.

Also, what do you mean when you say that my article misrepresents ?your? website? People who logged on to ?your? site directly (http://www.csulb.edu/~csnider/argument.html) indicated that you were much more ideologically bigoted than you were portrayed in my article. Shouldn?t you thank me for enhancing your academic reputation?

Finally, before I publish the following complaint, which was made against you on www.studentsforacademicfreedom.org, could you tell me whether it ?misrepresents? you? Also, is the ?students for academic freedom? website ?your? website, too?:
