*Trying* to be modest about it? Out of one corner of your mouth you accuse
me of intentionally hiding something, while from the other slithers this
nonsensical accusation. If I wished to dupe the "superstitious PC peasants"
with my credentials as a high priestess of knowledge and wisdom, I would
hardly have chosen *not* to flout them, would I, Mr. Whit. Whatever
happened to your brain, Bob? You can't think logically any more.

The only people I know who are impressed are my parents and siblings.

You are a hypocrite of the first order. Had I attached PhD to my surname,
you would have ragged on about that and nothing else. That is what you
have done to those people who have been "up front" in these newsgroups.

I have not *hidden* the fact that I am an anthropologist. In fact I
mentioned it during the first month I posted here, and for months after
was the object of snide comments about my "appeal to authority". Had
anyone asked me about my academic degrees, I would have told them. No
one did. A number of people here who know me personally, or have
communicated with me privately, knew. Others have figured it out by
following the newsgroup. That you didn't merely shows how unperceptive
you are. Sounds to me like you're just pissed because we got a good
laugh over your "Mommy Professor" rant, thanks to Bill Anderson's
delightful sense of humour.

One last thing, Bob - you know *nothing*, in fact, about what I am paid
full-time to do. You know *nothing* about the topical areas in which
I teach and do research. If you want to make accusations about "pushing
PC crap for a living", I suggest you do a little homework first.
