�We are relieved that UCSB has come to its senses and realized that it may not prohibit those who might criticize the university from using the university�s name,� remarked FIRE President David French. �UCSB twice told Mr. Baron, whose website is critical of the university, that it was a crime to use the UCSB name without the university�s permission. It is simply absurd for a public university to claim that it cannot be criticized by name.�
We are relieved, and gratefully note that despite several notes about this blog from administrators and faculty, nobody has ever suggested that we remove SCSU from our name.
