I've been away for roughly a week, and everything's going to hell. I unfortunately do not have time to comment on the idiotic department that touts its ranking in that utterly fraudulent and incompetent "pluralist" guide to philosophy. Nor can I remark at length on the blinding lack of foresight that the APA has exhibited in conducting its "back to 1992" retro-"renovation" of its already dysfunctional webpage. Nice job with the submission deadlines, jackasses!! One must wonder: Why take the old site down before the new one is ready?
I did just come across a curiosity. I was just reviewing a paper for a journal, and was surprised to find the author thanking in the footnotes anonymous reviews for another journal. I'd never seen that before. I suppose its a nice gesture of giving credit where it's due, but it does have the consequence of revealing that the paper was rejected by at least one other journal... When it gets rejected from the journal that is currently reviewing it, perhaps I'll get thanked too.
