Dear UVA students: in prying into Prof. Laycock's e-mails you are attacking his academic freedom

Douglas Laycock (Virginia) is, I would agree, on the wrong side of a number of recent religious liberty issues in both his advocacy and in his scholarship, but students requesting his e-mails are engaged in harassment and intimidation that infringe upon his academic freedom.  Cut it out, kids!  No good will come of this kind of mischief.  (You also won't succeed in stifling Prof. Laycock, so you're also wasting your time.  Try talking to him!  He's not that scary.)
