What are we doing?

As 2016 begins, we will have to wait and see what it brings but was surprised and rather disappointed to get this comment posted.

"I appreciate this blog and the knowledge it disseminates but don't use it to promote your research".

Public Engagement in Science is becoming an important element of the scientific process, so promoting our research is a core element of the blog. 

If you don't like it, you will have to lump it!

  1. Seriously,

    Who are these people? Are they unaware of the fact that the blog recognises conflicts of interest?

    As wonderful as the ways the internet has democratised the media, especially in having the ability to post Anonymous comments, I wonder if the quality of dialogue has had a "net" gain or loss when people post opinions like that.

    Is the biggest problem we face the acceptance of people showing a lack of critical thinking?
