How to Get Dean Search Committees to Stop Calling You to Ask If You're Interested

I thought I'd found the solution a few years ago, by having a blog, in which I speak plainly and honestly (which Deans are forbidden from doing) and in which I expressed political opinions so far out of the mainstream in the reactionary United States as to make all but the most progressive schools nervous.  This worked for awhile, though I've started getting the calls and inquiries again.   But now Brian Tamanaha (Wash U/St. Louis) has discovered the best way to guarantee one will never be sought after as a Dean:  make clear what you would do if you were Dean!
