Bullying of Academics

Bulling of Academics is a blog that is new to me. Here's the description:

The bullying of academics follows a pattern of horrendous, Orwellian elimination rituals, often hidden from the public. Despite the anti-bullying policies (often token), bullying is rife across campuses, and the victims (targets) often pay a heavy price.

"Nothing strengthens authority as much as silence." -Leonardo da Vinci

"All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men [or good women] do nothing." -Winston Churchill.

You might enjoyed the recent posts on dignity, narcissism, and manager training. There is some really good stuff on that blog. I should probably send it to my parents who are academics...perhaps that's why this all sounds so familiar.
