Adams Misquoted At Harrasment Forum

The Tech erroneously reported that "Glen Adams G asked the panelists to each give an example of an action that constituted `illegal' harassment and one example of `acceptable' harassment."

I did not ask that question. The question I did ask was very specific. I asked each panelist to "give an example of speech, language, sentences, or phrases that should not be punished." Notice that I never used the words "illegal" or "acceptable." Furthermore, I did not even use the word "harassment" in my question.

There is no such thing as "acceptable harassment." I respectfully request that The Tech apologize for not only misquoting me, but for misquoting me in such a way as to suggest that I, a black man, believe that there is such thing as "acceptable harassment."
