Many professors attacked by animal rights extremists have taken the approach of becoming as invisible as possible.

"People always say: 'Don't respond. If you respond, that will give [the attackers] credibility,'" said J. David Jentsch, a neuroscientist whose car was set on fire. "But being silent wasn't making us feel safer. And it's a moot point if they are coming to burn your car anyway, whether you give them credibility or not."
