Why is this publicly addressed? I am not defending Professor Halloway
despite our mutual affiliation, its just that I don't see why this
ridiculous nonsense has to continue. You/we are supposed to be
professionals and with that comes a certain responsibility to uphold
standards of excellence in our work and to refrain from assaults on each
other. I am in a rage about this, in case you all haven't been paying
attention a lot of people are saying that the "rome" of anthropology is
burning and y'all are just fiddling around. Now let's criticize the hell
out of each other's ideas, but the name calling and the baiting and the
"flaming" and the arguing demeans the profession of anthropology and the
worth of our degrees.
