soccultish update

Eszter reports evidence that her blind reviewer voodoo doll is working.  Meanwhile, within hours of tacking mine to my bulletin board, someone I suspect of having given a paper of mine a negative review changed their Facebook status update to “PLEASE GOD LET THIS PAIN IN MY ARM SUBSIDE” and it has stayed that way since.  So, 2-for-2, or 1-for-1, if you insist on discounting my testimonial for being made up.  Support travel-funding entrepeneurship and buy yours today!

  1. I believe you, Jeremy. These Voodoo Dolls are clearly powerful!

    It looks like only 2-3 of us have helped out this entrepreneurial grad student with her ASA travel. C’mon folks, seriously no one needs any help dealing with reviewers?


  2. i’m not so much for retribution, but i’d like a blind reviewer voodoo doll that brings me an acceptance for publication letter if i alcove it, feed it good chocolate (or wine) and bow to it every morning.


  3. oops, i didn’t read eszter’s update before posting my comments. i think i may get 4 of these dolls then: 3 blind reviewers + the editor. :)
