Forget THAT problem

A little more than a year ago, academia was abuzz about the Yik Yak problem. Yik Yak was (is) a website in which college students say nasty things about sex and about other people. When yours truly looked at it back then for UCLA and vicinity, the website seemed to be mainly the home of horny undergrad males.*

Now, according to Inside Higher Ed, the Yik Yak problem seems to be fading away for various reasons. Students are just losing interest.**

So that's one less worry you can forget about. Cheer up. (Or - more likely - you can worry about something else.)
