Did PZ Myers have anything to do with vanishing newspapers?

A friend sent us this:

“I said it was a terrible, terrible paper and they university should not be endorsing it,” Myers said.

But attorneys for the student newspaper are alleging Myers broke the law when they say he wrote a blog post on his personal blog urging people to throw away the publication.

The Alliance Defending Freedom has accused Myers, an associate professor in the school’s biology program, of encouraging people to steal and throw away a copy of the November 22nd edition of the newspaper. More.

But students, why are you reading the paper anyway? Just ask PZ, Sage of Morris, Minnesota, what to think. That’s why you went to university in the first place. Right?

    What?!?! A darwinist advocating the suppression of free speech and opinions different from his? That’s crazy talk. 😉

    From the OP: “Myers broke the law when they say he wrote a blog post on his personal blog urging people to throw away the publication.”

    My legal intuition is rusty, so how exactly is this breaking the law? It’s his blog and his opinion, which can be freely expressed, right?

    Why doesn’t a student just punch Myers in the mouth?

    It sounds like Myers is trying to go for Censor of the Year 2014. Best wishes on his hard work.
