This is a matter for the search committee to discuss, debate and decide,
not a listserv. Lemme tell you, as the President of a union with 1100
members in its bargaining unit, I've seen this stuff before, i.e. purely
interpersonal griping over search processes, which gets dressed up in
millenial class struggle rhetoric. The point should be to hire the best
candidate, period, and not to drag other peoples' qualifications, lack of
qualifications, or whatever into the mix. Folks, we have to behave better
than this insane system which forces us to brawl amongst ourselves for
scarce resources (including editorial posts).
