Dangling modifiers

While awkwardly written and somewhat dated, AAUP and the academy pay homage to the seminal 1940 Statement of Principles on Academic Freedom and Tenure.

via The Tenure Denial of Norman Finkelstein (By Peter Kirstein).

Although I have little interest in the details of other people’s tenure cases, I do read the AAUP (American Association of University Professors) blog to know what the union I belong to does.  It seems that they believe in dangling modifiers. Or is “awkwardly written” intended to be a clever self-referential remark?
