This amusing exchange from the FQXi archive deserves its own post.

This is probably the first time in history, someone let alone an Editor in Chief takes Nature to Court. The Nature article would undoubtedly have caused someone like Charles Darwin to turn in his grave. Charlie Chaplin would have called it modern times. I call it bad times, when something as big and great as Nature descends to the level of Schiermeier’s article. Incidentally El Naschie is not taking only Nature to Court. He is taking Macmillan to Court. That means he is taking Scientific American, Nature and Die Zeit to Court. Anyone who can put the pieces together will get the point.

To NJ (El naschie)
I think that you forget to mention Guardian journal, this also should be taken to court.
A little self-promotion goes a long way by Marc Abrahams, the editor of the bimonthly Annals of Improbable Research and organiser of the Ig Nobel prize
I wish good luck for our greatest crackpot (El naschie).

According to a recent amusing post on FQXi El Naschie will sue everyone and everything. :D
