Edited Out

Milner Prize

December 6, 2016

The nominations are made to test the fairness of the system. I am not allowed to apply, otherwise I would apply myself. If you wish Prof. Emeritus Alwyn van der Merwe will nominate and you can be a supporter if you wish. I cannot accept the idea of a “closed shop” in any walk of life, because this would be accepting corruption.”

Is it really such a good idea to try to curry a nomination from someone who was removed from his post as a journal editor because his atrociously low academic standards let in too many crackpot papers. Do you not, in turn, feel rather guilty … given that many of those loony papers were yours?  Shops should always be closed to the lunatic fringe.
