    Dude has written a few dozen articles. Now, where is your resume?
    I know dozen of PhD's in engineering who've written tons of papers, and some of those were idiots. Maybe you get a tingling up your leg when you meet a PhD, but I don't. There is one that works in my office. Being a member of societies, getting govt grants and writing lots of papers doesn't guarantee an impressive individual.

    Moreover, comparing an "expert's" credentials to that of the OP who is merely expressing an opinion is disingenuous and accomplished nothing. If the poster held themselves out to be an expert in the same field as the professor and questioned the professor's qualifications then, perhaps, the inclusion of credentials may be germane to the topic. No one in this thread questioned the professor's credentials, they only questioned their actions and that is where it should have stayed. Clearly that post was an attempt to garner an emotional reaction rather than elicit a thoughtful, intelligent response.
