Another reader on another blog made the following discovery...
Missing pixels from 'y' and 'g':
Incorrect text alignment:
Hypothesis: the instructor's email address in the 'from' field was cut from another screenshot (hence the missing pixels), and pasted into this one (hence the wrong alignment). Classic c&p. (cut and paste)
I was a little concerned about it when I posted it. Still Salon.com has the post up on their site.
If you look at the email purported to be from the Nursing Faculty member to the aggrieved one, you see the email is a rogers.com email, not an email from the school. Anyone with a Roger's account could set up any name they want for an email address. It would seem odd that a teacher would use her home email to communicate with a student.
I have removed my story on this until I can confirm more of the facts...
The Salon post is here and the blogger that has written about it is here
As one of my readers stated...
The story about the lesbian nursing student appears to be a complete sham. There was a lot of Internet detective work going on behind the scenes by some active web users and it would appear the prof/instructor is being trashed and her reputation destroyed by a person that should be in a psychiatric hospital and not a place of higher education. ... As I read the story published by salon.com it appeared too over-the-top to be real. It definitely had shock value. I'm very surprised salon.com ran it without doing any further research and getting official statements seeing as it's posting real names/contact info that would likely result in some pretty nasty hate-mail, etc.
