After publishing an article in a top analytic journal, I receive a cc of a letter from someone who had written to the journal editors complaining that the journal had forsaken all standards by publishing the article. It went on at some length explaining how pointless the article was. The author of the letter had sent it to me himself so I would know that the editors were getting the letter. I was shocked. The article was eventually chosen for the Philosopher’s Annual. I wonder how often men get such letters, or journal editors get such letters.
