Likewise, the invocation of the Star Simpson breadboard incident as reason for a neutrality policy seemed really odd... a little glimpse into the inhumanity of institutional thinking. Was it really so unclear why people were angry with MIT in the Star case?
There are two interesting questions there which they should have been asking the MIT community to self-reflect on: Were MIT's actions actually consistent with their policy of neutrality, and is a policy of neutrality an appropriate coarse of action?
