Comment of the week

Comment of the week: Anthony Watts thinks a goofy comment about the vileness of “academia” is worth making special note of. Note the incorrect punctuation and embrace of stereotype when Alexander Feht says:

I completely understand, why Christopher Monckton felt a need to make an example of a typical reprehensible representative of modern Academia.

So Watts Up With That is now officially anti-academic? An odd perspective for a “science” website.

Funny though, it’s Monckton’s response to Prof. Abraham’s analysis that is full of arm-waving bluster.

  1. This latest attack is only the latest in a series of anti-intellectual and anti-science attacks. Watts does nothing to damp down the hate-speech, but drew attention to the “cockroaches” remark for special praise.

  2. Watts himself chimed in down in the comments section there. It’s quite amusing.

  3. That thread is the gift that just keeps on giving.

    Here’s another gem:

    His blog, his rules. Alexander lives in the Rockies, perhaps a Galt’s Gulch can be started there!
