I have expended quite considerable effort in trying to read "A Response to Some of the Points of: When Academic Disagreement Becomes Harassment and
Persecution" by Wayne Bishop (with R. James Milgram), the document attached to the above-noted message from Professor Bishop. [I have NOT tried to read the other documentation, to which Professor Bishop has provided links in his message].

I spent a good bit of time on reading that document.

The prose is well-nigh unreadable.

My recommendation: The good Professors Bishop and Milgram would do well to attend a course on "How to Write Clearly and Effectively". I understand such courses are readily available in the USA.

I would have to be paid - and paid very sizably - to read (and properly understand) that turgid document.

("Still Shoveling Away!" - with apologies if due to Barry Garelick for any tedium caused; and with the observation that the EASY way to avoid such tedium would be to avoid reading any messages purported to originate from GSC. [I understand Mr Garelick is associated in some way with Professor Bishop or Professor Milgram])
