Questions that are rarely asked

“Do studies about publication bias themselves suffer from publication bias?”

That is from MR reader Kevin Burke, who refers me to this post from the excellent Andrew Gelman.

Well, there you go. Given that Tyler has now "published" Kevin Burke's comment, the question arises as to whether his comment about whether studies of publication bias have publication bias must be subjected to the same question: does his remark have publication bias? Ah ha! Anybody able to go the next level up?

But does publishing your comment on the comment have bias?

"The light dove, cleaving the air in her free flight, and feeling its resistance, might imagine that its flight would be still easier in empty space." --Immanuel Kant, Critique of Pure Reason

Plainly, we are standing on the threshold of a new intellectual enterprise: a Critique of Academic Discourse.

Indeed this hasn't been asked enough. I guess what we truly need in this age is real, relevant academic discourse. Too much things has been pulling us down. Let us pull ourselves back up to our old glory.
