Posts Removed Because We’ve Received Letters From Edwin Mellen Press’ Attorney

Earlier this week, we received two letters from the attorney for Edwin Mellen Press. We have subsequently removed two posts by Rick Anderson discussing Edwin Mellen Press and all comments emanating from those posts. (Note as of April 3, 2013: The posts have been restored less the disputed comment, per SSP Board action.)

We have reproduced the letters below. Street addresses have been redacted as we deemed appropriate.
