That would be because you have no problem with people on your side of
the fence making serious accusations of "racism" in regard to not
only WHITE mathematics educators, but African-American and Native-
American mathematicians and teachers who don't toe the Mathematically
Correct/HOLD party line on Saxon Math, etc.

And of course, it's because when Wayne Bishop repeatedly calls for or
quotes Reid Lyons calling for "blowing up the schools of education,"
you see this as a perfectly legitimate rhetorical device and/or
dismiss it as humor. No such slack would ever be cut for someone
using sarcasm or satire to promote a viewpoint you disdain.

And of course, you don't consider out of bounds your own repeated
insistence that anyone who has a viewpoint on a subject that strays
from your political views (unless the person happens to be Wayne or
someone like him) is not only a socialist or communist or pinko or
fellow traveller or some other similar Red-baiting epithet, but that
said person is a clear admirer of the work and practices of Josef
Stalin and Mao Tse-tung.

Basically, Ed, you're like Paul Tanner, Greggie, and Wayne: you're
cleverly selective about who gets to say or do what. I don't see why
you even bother to deny it when the record on this forum speaks for
itself.

I've haven't claimed to be playing by any rules here, since I gave up
trying a long time ago. You have within the last year posted the name
of some sex offender whose only connection to me is living on the
same very long street. Your response was some sort of "turnabout is
fair play" nonsense which aside from the fact that you were quite
likely hoping to gain traction with that post that might get me
barred from teaching, just as Greggie (unsuccessfully) tried to have
my e-mail privileges suspended at U of M when they were my ISP and
Wayne tried (unsuccessfully) to get me in trouble with Professor
Fred Goodman, a member of my dissertation committee, and just as
Greggie as recently as today was fishing for some way to get me in
trouble with any current or future district that might employ me.

While I know you will dismiss the above as an "obvious" attempt at
humor on your part, there is not the slightest hint of that in what
you actually posted. But like all these other attempts, it didn't work.

I don't hide behind a pseudonym here as you do. My contact
information is readily available, and I don't doubt that you, Wayne,
Greggie, and others will make further attempts to silence me and/or
interfere with my career. Why, after all, would anything have changed
in your tactics?

Nonetheless, I expect to be working and posting here or elsewhere for
a long time to come if I so desire. You prove yourself an abject
coward with each anonymous post you make, even though I have provided
anyone interested with clear evidence of who you are and where you
live (confirmed at least in part by your occasional acknowledgment of
a Brooklyn, NY residence). I can well understand your "shyness" about
your identity. After all, given what you and your friends have done,
why would you not believe that I or someone else would go for your
livelihood or family? If I were anything like you, I'd long ago have
tried. Since I'm not, you and your family and your job remain safe
from any substantive attack from me. Much as I despise you and your
friends, I wouldn't stoop to your level in this regard. If the worst
that ever happens to you is that you CHOOSE (as you do) to read what
I write, vulgar or otherwise, you're a lucky fellow.
