Up until today, Cal State-Northridge Economics professor Kenneth Ng had a website.

Not just any website, mind you, but a Thai sex-tourism one called “Big Baby Kenny” that took you through the, ahem, ins-and-outs of the “Thailand Girl Scene” and promised “No Hidden Agenda, No Censorship, No Bullshit.”
[By "Girl" he means "Hooker."--BULLSHIT RED FLAG #1]
But then people got wind of it and thought, SHOCKINGLY, that it was creepy and inappropriate and, what else? Oh right: creepy. Then Cal State-Northridge said it wouldn’t intervene or discipline Ng because he didn’t run his creepy site using public/University resources. A free speech debate ensued, with Ng as his own most vociferous defender. As he told the LA Daily News:
“I’m not going to let anyone make me take it down. That’s just a personality thing.”
And by “anyone,” Ng did not mean himself, apparently, because earlier today, he actually took down his own site [BULLSHIT RED FLAG #2]. NOT, as Cal State-Northridge’s Provost Harry Hellenbrand said in a statement “because [Ng] considered the subject matter and content as unsuitable for public discourse, public discussion, or public debate,” but “because of the deleterious effect it had on the university’s reputation.”
[Which never occurred to Ng in the entire year during which the site was up, when he was waxing economic about prostitution--"The Thailand Girls Scene is all about expanded opportunities. It allows you to do things that just cannot be done in 'The World' or lowers the cost so much that a guy with a normal income can do things which he could never afford in 'The World'"--a trade that engenders child abuse, violence towards women, and human trafficking in Thailand.--BULLSHIT RED FLAG #3]
No, the reason Ng took down his website is because it was just too good [BULLSHIT RED FLAG #4]. In the only post you can now find on Big Baby Kenny written by Ng–all others have been deleted (although his delusional, grandiose prose lives on in this gem)–the professor writes:

How can one celebutard–who knows full well how closely her words are parsed–commit two Twit faux pas in one week?
What we’re referring to is handing off her blackberry to a friend who apparently shouted out himself in no uncertain terms: Continue reading DISGWITTER OF THE WEAK! Lindsay Lohan
