News about American Library Association and Scienceblogs
The American Library Association has finally added "Of Pandas and People" to its list of "banned books," which is really a list of "challenged" and banned books. The ALA reasoned that there is no reason not to add the book to the list because the ALA's own records show that the book was "challenged" in 1993.
Blog service Scienceblogs, which has a blog based in the UK and is concerned that leaking commenters' IP addresses to bloggers may be illegal there, has referred this matter to its legal counsel.
Happy April Fools' Day.
