Harassment Hypocrisy from the AAS Membership

Keith's note: Per my earlier post about the whole topic of harassment as it is being discussed at the American Astronomical Society Meeting. This is how astronomers respond (Click below). In this case Jeffrey Silverman, a member of the faculty at the University of Texas Austin. I'm not sure I take the AAS membership that seriously any more. They complain (rightfully so) about something and then their members negate whatever point was trying to surface. And then the guy who commented earlier injected race into the whole conversation. Their members exhibit the same behavior that they profess to reject.
