Ryan Enos Waves His Hands
Today is the 11th episode in the Ryan Enos saga.
I am frankly sick of writing about this 110 IQ midwit masquerading around as a 140 IQ Harvard professor, but at this point I may as well see this through to the bitter end.
It has been 2 months since the Midwest Political Science Association launched their investigation into Ryan Enos’ fabricated data (after their initial attempt to silence & intimidate me via legal action failed horribly and blew up in their faces).
Here is the update: Enos has posted a 4-page addendum to the fraudulent article’s Dataverse page.
Reading this response makes me infinitely more suspicious — this "response" is completely non-responsive. Zero attempt to reanalyze the data, just pure hand waving. He’s not addressing the criticisms or explaining the data at all.
Please read the addendum yourself. Make up your own mind.
His whole response boils down to: "data is unreliable sometimes! Oh well!"
If the data is no good, shouldn’t the paper be retracted?
“Enos replied to the anonymized complaint and we had two independent scholars examine the resulting materials,” writes Kathy Dolan and Jen Lawless, Co-Editors in Chief of the AJPS, in an email obtained by Karlstack. “This concludes our examination of the matter.”
The political scientist who submitted the formal complaint — who had remained anonymous up until this point — disagrees.
“This is the exact type of thing I'd expect from Kathy and Jen -- I'm sure you've realized they're not the most scrupulous people out there,” wrote Dr. Steve Utych in an email to Karlstack. “I'm definitely a lot more on board with ‘this is fraud’ rather than ‘this is incompetence’ after his response.”
