A pertinent recent comment on my blog. I reproduce part of it here:

The problem I have with criticism of your work is that it’s religious in nature and the people conducting the criticism are frankly not qualified enough to be passing judgment. For such a prominent issue, we need prominent referees, especially given the novel math employed. Journals are a joke these days, so I don’t accept their vetting on such a novel argument. The reproducibility crisis reveals they are in a massive credibility meltdown and can’t be trusted in an age of hyperspecialism and information overload. What surprises me is that the actual physics community has been afraid to directly engage you. Getting a self-righteous statistician in the Netherlands to do it for them is quite cowardly and comical, even if he’s right. Vicious blog trolls like Luboš Motl (long disgraced from the physics community) just copy-and-paste criticism and confess ignorance of geometric algebra, as did Gill. This is the same community that endorses the multiverse, SUSY, unprovable black hole theories, quantum computers and non-empirical string theory and E8 speculations.

To someone unfamiliar with the contents of my papers Gill's comments may seem smart and intelligent, but to me they always look like that of a C-grade student who is stuck on a problem because of a total lack of talent in simple mathematics. :)

There are lies, damned lies, and statistics.

Richard D. Gill is a professor of statistics. :)

For the record, I have posted following comments about an unpublished "critique" of work by Richard D. Gill: https://www.researchgate.net/publicatio ... 7s_Theorem
