This peer review pertains to one of the Boghosian hoax papers. The discussion is truly mind boggling. These are academic professionals, educators, and allegedly scholars. This paper didn’t just slip past the review process, it was accepted with enthusiasm. It’s especially worth noting that the success rate of these hoax papers is better than that of many struggling early career scholars in the field
. The hoaxers have day jobs, and this was a side project. It raises a devastating question for the field: if untrained authors can be successful cranking out satirical gibberish, what incentive is there for anyone to do genuine or sincere scholarship?
"Thank you for the opportunity to review this interesting paper." Amazing.
