This announcement suggests that Mr. Oseroff's suspension for his professional misconduct may only be temporary. APA members need to contact their divisional representatives about this. I know folks have strong feelings about this--as one philosopher wrote me the other day, "I think Oseroff’s work at the APA is a disgrace, and he has attacked friends of mine." Contact your divisional representatives.
UPDATE: Several readers asked about my exchange with Dr. Skye Cleary, the Lead Editor of the APA Blog, prior to my posting about the suspension on Monday. Everyone I've showed it to read it exactly as I did. Here it is. I wrote her as follows:
Dear Dr. Cleary, Someone else involved with the APA Blog told me that you did suspend Mr. Oseroff this past Friday, which I had expected you would after Prof. Piggliucci vouched for your integrity and good judgment. I am going to post about this later today. If there is anything you want to say for the record, I am happy to quote you. If you would rather not say anything, that's fine, I of course would understand. Thank you for your attention to this. Yours, Brian Leiter • • [Dr Skye Cleary]<https://twitter.com/Skye_Cleary>
Dear Professor Leiter, Thank you for the opportunity to comment. I appreciate it. However, at the moment I do not have anything to add to the matter. Very best wishes, Skye Cleary • Sep 24 •
A temporary suspension isn't sufficient under the circumstances in any case. Thanks to those who have written that they have or will contact their APA representatives. Dr. Cleary, like all the other editors, works without pay and without ultimate authority over the blog; that authority rests with officers of the APA I am told.
