Is professor an earned title, that continues to be applied to someone even if they retire or leave the academic community, or is it an indication of employment by a college or university as a teacher? If it's the latter, it seems that by signing his email "Prof. John Daly", this Adjunct Instructor (not a doctorate holder, teaching zero level English courses) was using his position as a 'professor' at Warren County Community College to intimidate a student, saying "I will continue to expose your right-wing, anti-people politics until groups like yours won't dare show their face on a college campus." Aren't most community colleges state and federally funded? Is he expressing this as a government employee?
I'm glad to see Daly has resigned. No permalink to the statement from the president of the college, though.
