Simple Justice, a criminal defense blog has accused me of "misblawgary." This criminal defense lawyer criticizes me for raising questions about an adjunct requiring students to post comments on his blog. I have also been criticized by Susan Liebel on her web site Build a Solo Practice. My comments concerned Prof. Randaza over at Legal Satyricon .
I do not mind being criticized. In fact, I think a heathly debate in blogosphere is a good thing. However, I would wish that people would read what I wrote before they criticize. I meant what I said. Requiring a student to post comments on a blog raises issues. Is the Prof doing this to get more hits? Many Prof bloggers get paid from advertising. What about students who cannot afford internet access, do not have computers or have difficulty reading on line. I have had students who fall into each of these categories.
So, what do you think? Should Professors require students to post blog comments online?
