Yay, more fallout. Need I say more? Oh go on then:
This is a complete fabrication…. I dispute the description “abuse”, and suggest “use” as replacement… Prof Wadhams is apparently not content with people commenting on, or indeed even reporting, his work… This is ridiculous… This is an attempt to spuriously link the complaint to the Royal Society… If anything, my action demonstrates that bullying behaviour by senior academics can at some level be successful…
That last one, correctly, says that this isn’t just a matter of fun for the peanut gallery; its more serious than that. Note that PW has form on this issue: see footnote 25: I was subject of a complaint a just over a decade ago when Prof Wadhams accused me of “fraud, theft and plagiarism”. Can there be a more serious accusation for a young post-doctoral scientist? The complaint was found by my management at the time to be without merit.
But enough of the serious stuff. My favourite bit comes from PW himself:
You have seen the full tweet deck. It speaks for itself. Some examples…
Aie! If it f*ck*ng well speaks for itself then it does, indeed, speak for itself, and you don’t need to provide any examples, bozo. If you need to provide examples and expound upon them, then it doesn’t speak for itself.
And (not even slightly faked, but it is cropped):
