So I can understand why Sys Rq's outing post was on shakey ground but how much astroturfing should Metafilter tolerate?
I mean, if a guy who worked at, oh, say Pfizer, came on and spent a lot of time shilling Viagra or Celebrex while all the while pretending to, uh, sell cars for a living, I would hope that the powers that be would kick
him squarely in the groin.
For comparison sake, I'm in a sort of informal betting pool over who get's invited "not back" to the pharmaceutical industry over this
. Why should Metafilter not hold itself to the same standard?
I mean fake peer reviewed journal? Fuuuuuuck!
