“Sometimes they want to disengage. It’s a personal choice”

The only person I have ever had to block from my e-mail account has been Professor David Oliver. I did so as he was denigrating me in public.

What follows is the last e-mail that I accepted from from Professor Oliver:

“Please do not email me then order me not to reply to you by email. I find it pretty offensive. At a loss to understand this mentality”

Professor Oliver frightens me. He is in a position of power and is not afraid to personally attack those with whom he does not agree. He is extremely eloquent.

Confusingly, Professor Oliver has said this in the public domain:

“Anyone is free to mute, block or unfollow anyone/any thread at any time – sometimes for own sanity or self protection. Sometimes they want to disengage. It’s a personal choice, no-one else’s business, not a legitimate cause for faux-outrage”
