Title overloaded[edit]

Ross J. Anderson (professor) is a pleonasm, as there is no other relevant Ross J. Anderson. Thus either "Ross J. Anderson" or "Ross Anderson (professor)". Which of the two is better? --KnightMove (talk) 02:29, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

How about "Ross Anderson (security researcher)", which describes the field in which he works much better than merely adding his academic title. Markus Kuhn (talk) 16:57, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Criticism?[edit]

This article appears to be quite flowery towards Anderson. added criticism of views on TC. an active controversy exists in this field and not adding specific criticism of his criticism on TC appears biased in light of how well regarded he is said to be by the entirety of the rest of this article.216.96.231.221 (talk) 20:41, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

2016 PACE trial tribunal evidence[edit]

I think this page should reflect recent events at a tribunal relating to release of trials data from the the PACE medical study, where Ross Anderson gave evidence as a witness for the defence (Queen Mary University London, who were ruled against) where he made unevidenced claims that patients with M.E. were "young psychopaths" and drew outlandish comparisons to animal rights activists. The tribunal ruling concluded his claims were "grossly exaggerated", that his claims "do him no credit" and "What we got from him was a considerable amount of supposition and speculation with no actual evidence to support his assertions". This article explains the case, and links to the tribunal ruling itself including the judgement. https://jcoynester.wordpress.com/2016/08/17/qmul-responds-to-uk-tribunal-ordering-release-of-pace-chronic-fatigue-syndrome-trial-data/ Kicsinyul (talk) 12:05, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Signature[edit]

I think it's possible to add his signature, because it's public available in most of his letters, like this[1] one. However I don't know the exact rules for placing signatures and therefore I think it's better to place a comment here. Rinkp (talk) 09:37, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
