Post No job if you link to WikiLeaks, warns Columbia

So it looks like the witch hunt extends to students now,

"From The Arabist comes yet another warning of the career dangers of a fondness for WikiLeaks in the form of an email sent to students of their School of International and Public Affairs:"
