Professor's university `blog' attracts controversy

Blogging and academic freedom gets some treatment in this article. The issue is more or less the same one encountered by folks (especially staff and faculty) who keep personal pages in general on university servers - freedom of speech can run up against university policies in interesting ways. The end result in this case: the homophobe professor blogger gets to keep his blog on the univeristy server because he's not violated policies or laws. As the article points out, however, a number of people are still hurt that the statements were made in the first place.

It's an interesting scenario, for sure, but does anyone besides me think this article is lacking? It certainly reads like an outside perspective on blogging. Maybe it's the tone?
