Waaa US Deficit
I beg to differ. I’ve dealt with my share of academics that cannot bear to hear any criticism of their work. The vitriol that exists in academia is well known. If you are different, more power to you. As I’ve posted before, I’ve seen responses to papers at conferences that looked like feeding frenzies. The attacks were most often from people who had published work that would suffer from the paper presented. There was nothing collaborative about it. Publish or die.
