Ahhh this is one of those issues that I find so disconcerting. The peer review system can be gamed badly either accidentally or overtly. In a similar vein I’ve also had a running debate with a friend over whether or not professional skeptics like Joe Nickel or Michael Shermer actually are a net benefit to science in general.

And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”
