Ratemyprofessors_1Interesting article in the Chroncile of Higher Education: U. of Saskatchewan Fires Tenured Professor Accused of Maligning Colleagues on RateMyProfessors.com, by Dan Carnevale:

The University of Saskatchewan has fired a tenured professor after determining that he had anonymously posted disparaging messages about fellow faculty members on RateMyProfessors.com.

Stephen Berman was a math professor at the university for more than 30 years. According to an independent arbitration panel, he maligned colleagues in postings to the Web site over a seven-month period during 2002 and 2003. The site is designed for students to share their views of their professors with other students.
