RateYourStudents Moderator Outed

I became quite upset this morning, when I discovered that The Chronicle had outed the RateYourStudents blog moderator( I think that he is seriously worried about his career and the opinion of his colleagues. But all he really did, was post emails sent in by other faculty. So, why on earth was The Chronicle so curious and had to track him down following a trail of IP addresses? I always thought that The Chronicle was in support of faculty??? And why should anyone give him a hard time?
So, Dear Martin Bell: Whatever you decide regarding the future of your blog, I enjoyed reading the posts, and you did not do anything wrong. You actually monitored, whereas RateMyProfessor does very little monitoring of their website. Thank you!

I am sure I was April-fooled!!!

This is too bad. The Chronicle sounded almost gleeful, like "Ha Ha, we found him." Makes me wonder if it was the undergraduate interns. Can we hope this is an April Fool's Joke?

Yeah, it turned out to be an April fool's joke. He's got more on it on the blog now.
