happen to academic culture if failures to publish and present were given
equal weight with success? Or greater weight? Better still, imagine if all
the vitriol the aspiring had - under the cover of anonymity - themselves
delivered their peers, were to come back to bite them in this manner.
Imagine if scholars were judged on what they had said of others
