There's a rather lively discussion going on at Historiann in response to my post at Prof. Hacker on policies for late assignments, which apparently is getting a larger life because it was mentioned at Inside Higher Ed. For those who are interested in the topic, you might want to check out that discussion. I'm not sure how to read the tone of some of the comments. It's hard to know if people are saying, "That policy won't work for me; I have to do it this way." Or, "That guy is an idiot."
