For instance, just last week, the same person who uploaded the ‘91 papers, uploaded a copy of an "Article about STURP in National Geographic Magazine – June 1980." That article has already been taken down as it was a clear violation of copyright law and a clear abuse of Academia policies; the site is not a public archive.
Many prominent shroud scholars use Academia.edu, to name just a few: Andrea Nicolotti, Emanuela Marinelli, Paolo Di Lazzaro, Adrie Vd Hoeven, Alessandro Piana, Mark Antonacci, Andy Weiss. For them and for us It is a great facility, so long as it is not abused. I would hate to see shroud scholars get a bad reputation among Academia’s editors and users by one eccentric shroud evangelist who is saturating the site with papers written by others and scans of brochures, catalogues and newspaper clippings.
