so much for credibility in academia

This is hilarious....if only the American Psychological Association were so shady, I'd have a bright future!

Prank paper fools scientists

p.s. i have to apologize that the frequency of my posting seems to be negatively correlated w/ the amount of intellectual content (significant at the .05 alpha level...haha yes i'm a psych nerd). oh well!

I find it pretty funny that they got what seems to be quite a few (or a few overly generous) donations. I guess people have a strong belief in debunking this conference... or just too much loose cash.

It seems like in academia, the more jargony something is, the more credible.
