Let's run the conservatives right off campus

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.
