Some mild hubbub going on over at MetaTalk about Neuroprosthesis News and the Neuroprosthesis News blogger’s penchant for rampant self-linking. This leads to to the discussion on the ethics of self-linking: when is it acceptable? On Metafilter, never on the front page.
It’s always funny when someone responds to being called out by lashing out with reactionary ad hominems, even playing the classic “free speech” card and claiming that his self-linking was an “experiment” which apparently gives him (her?) the right to transcend “DA RULEZ.” Someone seems rather unstable here.
Update: More info.
