    We tend to get into RA/NA discussions on these boards.

    But I think that people from both sides of the fence can look at an event like this and just agree that if this guy had a DBA from even the sketchiest of DEAC schools, this would be far less of an issue (if an issue at all).

    So, RA? NA? Faith based? Yeah, it's fine to have preferences, but at the end of the day anything accredited by a USDOE recognized accreditor won't be the sort of time bomb like we see here.

    I always hate to see people with distinguished credentials get greedy for that little taste and bring the whole thing tumbling down.

    From the article:

    "It is a little known fact that Green Lanes in a quiet north London suburb has more universities per square metre than any other street in Britain..."

    It is a little-known fact that I am fond of retelling that 65+ years ago, my Mum, Dad and I lived on Green Lanes in that quiet suburb (Palmers Green). As far as I know, there weren't any of the fake "universities" there between 1948 and 1952. Those "schools" were creatures of the UDP scam of the 90s and early 2000s.
