  • Andy asserts that he - alone in the all the world - has uncovered evidence that Richard Dawkins is not a real professor, and is unrecognized by Oxford University. There follows a thirteen day edit war and an even longer discussion, during which at least nine separate editors (including Ed Poor and Roger Schlafly) contradict Andy's assertion, point out its libelous content, and provide a detailed history of the appointments process at Oxford University, repeatedly listing each factual error in turn and providing confirmatory evidence from the University of Oxford official Calendar, the University of Oxford official Gazette, the University of Oxford Distinctions Committee, the University of Oxford General Board, the University of Oxford Congregation, and the University of Oxford Council, as well as the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the Oxford English Dictionary, and the University's own Vice Chancellor. Andy reviews the arguments and pronounces that "no specific errors have been identified."
  • Truer words have never been spake.
