I've been trying to understand what it means for the Boghossian group's papers to be "hoaxes" or "pranks". People refer to them as "hoaxes" because they were written with ulterior motives, not because they contain any fabricated or fraudulent contents (maybe they do, but no one is mentioning it). I've published well over 50 peer reviewed articles. Supposing I pick one of them and declare, "I was insincere when I wrote this!" Does that make it a hoax? If I contact all the people who cited my work to tell them it's a hoax, their first response would be to ask, "what did you falsify?" If I didn't falsify anything, then it's not a hoax. It's a real paper regardless of any ulterior motives I may have.
