    (I think) This is the first time I've seen him referred to as Dr. Gates. I have seen Professor Gates, which is a more distinguished title, but more often I've seen Skip Gates, as if the media is on a nickname basis with Dr. Gates. However, I'm constantly seeing Sgt Crowley.

      Yes, I do not like it when I here people like Mika B refer to him as 'Skip' like they are down or something.  But I most often hear him referred to as Harvard Prof HL or Skip Gates and subsequently simply by his name.  I think his persona has outgrown 'just' the affiliation with harvard, and the dr or prof thing.  I personally have not ssensed a difference but maybe you have.  I have been avoiding most of the sensationalist media coverage.
