Perhaps you have heard of a tenured professor (in one field) writing to the advisor of a Ph.D. candidate (in another field), due to some political comments in a blog (on a topic not part of either field)? Protein Wisdom has a rundown of the situation.
In the comments, one of the members of Obsidian Wings came up with the following response:
Dear Dr. Martin:
If you do not instruct Dr. Wallace Hettle (seriously: “Wallace Hettle”? Are you kidding me?) to cease and desist in his attempts to fuck with Purdue Ph.D candidate Paul Deignan, Purdue University will, with a minimum of effort, reduce your pathetic third-tier academic program to rapidly expanding plasma.
It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature, but it takes a damn fool to screw with engineers bearing a grudge.
Sincerely, Slart. E. Bartfast
