In reply to: Rena Blumberg, class of '67 's message, "Censored forum" on 06:58:21 04/30/08 Wed

I've spoken on this subject off-list with Rena via e-mail.

Her original post contained a very serious accusation about the behavior of a member of the Scarborough faculty. Without some sort of credible corroboration, I didn't feel comfortable letting it stand.

I am not interested in censoring anyone's opinions or feelings as expressed here but I do have a responsibility - as I explained to Rena - for what is "published" here.

I can't allow posters to make serious accusations that would damage the reputation of others without knowing that the poster can back those allegations up with evidence or first-hand testimony.

I didn't delete the post. I simply removed the parts that I considered problematic - and informed Rena immediately by e-mail. I've also assured Rena that if she can provide corroboration I'll willingly restore them.

There certainly are some sad and painful untold stories revolving around people's experiences at Scarborough, as there are in every life. I don't think we should ignore them nor tacitly condone them by keeping silence - if presented with solid evidence that the stories are factual.

Yes, come on ned, i remember when rena was censored in school, so good for her she hasnt given it up yet. For myself Stillman was one of the best teachers I had anywhere, Scarborough, college or law school, even though he was a buster to me for sure. Like to know what Rena thinks, good to see her again.
