When criticisms are made of Hosterman, the PW locks the thread. Hmmmm. Sounds like an endorsement to me.
There were some personal comments made, more comments about her utter lack of leadership. There are far more, and nastier, comments made on other threads but PW does not lock those.
When Hosterman sells herself to Stanford and then publicizes her so-called professor status she opens herself up to more than just academic comments.

The open comment gives this venue power, but that is diminished when they lock it down, mostly just to prevent open discourse.
And why do most of Tim Hunt"s columns get locked?
