Very deep is the well of the past barrel of low-life junk-science grifting. Should we not call it bottomless?

OUTTAKE2: The Updating.

Here at the Riddled Research Laboratory and Reverse Sausage Manufactory we are feeling popular and very truly run after. For it is not only "Anna" at Alliance Star who acquired a copy of a conference program and is now offering to publish our presentation from it while promising to love us long time. For the same conference program has come to the attention of "Maydim Malkov" at an International Journal, who is also bidding for that same presentation!

Closer examination reveals that "" and "" are socktoplasmic excrescences of legendary Chinese spammers "Science Publishing Group". Maydim Malkov is a real person who made the mistake of submitting a paper for another of their journal-shaped garbage chutes, and in the manner of an Alzabo they have stolen his/her identity.

Somehow the title 'AcadeMickeys' for a journal-indexing service does not bestow the intended sense of credibility.

This whole genre of post-conference solicitation has inspired serious academic reports, devoted to the off-putting uncanny-valley nature of the names and language it features. One shudders to think of the meta-solicitation spam inundating the authors of those presentations, once the spammers find their addresses.

But wait, a challenger appears! The lovable American Chinese scallywags at David Publishing have scraped or purchased the same list of conference attendees, and here's 'Betty Hinshaw' with a slightly belated solicitation!

It is good to know that they uphold the highest standards of malpractice.

Great is the temptation to write to all three gangs of grifters to inform them of the competition, and let them fight among themselves. But I should probably wait to hear an offer from SCIRP -- a 4th Chinese band of puke-funnelling mockademic moochers.
