'"Skeptics and atheists like to think they are above human foibles like celebrity worship," Rebecca Watson, a prominent feminist skeptic, told BuzzFeed News. "In a way, that makes them particularly susceptible to being abused by their heroes. I think we see that over and over again." Women at skeptics meetings would often warn each other to avoid Krauss, she added, but conference organizers seemed reluctant to act. '
'In response to complaints, two institutions -- Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario -- have quietly restricted [Krauss] from their campuses. Our reporting is based on official university documents, emails, and interviews with more than 50 people.'

Skeptics commenting on other skeptics, now we're getting somewhere!
The reflex is a lonely child
Who's waiting by the park
The reflex is a door to finding
Treasure in the dark
And watching over lucky clover
Isn't that bizarre
Every little thing the reflex does
Leaves you answered with a question mark?
