Defending the Petition Candidates

The Neophyte, posting on Voices in the Wilderness, defends alumni Trustee petition candidates Peter Robinson '79 and Todd Zywicki '88 and their charge that Dartmouth is becoming too much like a university.
It used to be that for their four undergraduate years, students who attended Dartmouth were given the chance of a lifetime- to live and learn amongst their peers, without having to compete for resources with grad students and administrative beaurocracy- in short, to do everything Mr. Bydon espouses. And those four years are what Dartmouth, simply, should return to being all about.

Why don't "the Neophyte" and "the Curmudgeon" turn their web page from a mere soapbox into a true blog and allow comments, or at least provide an email? They claim to offer "A forum for discussion" and frequently ask questions of their readers, in one case seeking a response from the Provost ("Indeed. Mr. Provost, what say you sir?"). Maybe they can't handle hearing any criticism of their ideas.
