Elisabeth KÃ¼bler-Ross famously coined the five stages of grief: 1) Denial, 2) Anger, 3) Bargaining, 4) Depression, 5) Acceptance Anthony Watts appears to be stuck at stage 2. Oh sure, he's still very much in denial over this, but make no mistake, he's also fuming and furiously spinning. It is highly doubtful that any amount of peer review--when that final threshold is crossed--will be enough to get him through the final three stages of grief. So Watts, his WUWT minions, and the Moranos, will always be the hold-outs. As Donald Rumsfeld would say, they are the dead-enders.
