Never Put Salt in Your Eyes and the Edwin Mellen Press

The Society for Scholarly Publishing removed two blog posts and associated comments after receiving letters threatening a lawsuit from Edwin Mellen Press. Additional comments about the blogpost removal can be read at the Chronicle’s Wired Campus.

Besides the blogpost removals, it seems that Edwin Mellen Press is making a digital land grab on Dale Askey domains as reported on the Digital Shift. A list of even more domains that EMP owns and, which relate to theMcMaster-Mellen Controversy, are linked off the blog post: Fresh (Possibly Bizarre) Activity in Mellen Press vs Dale Askey lawsuit situation.

When I read about these latest developments it reminded me of this sketch from the Kids in the Hall.
