So in the most recent issue of Imprint (Vol. 32, Issue 2) Ted Fleming's article entitled Vernacular Stimulation once again was an inefficient attempt to make fun of mathNEWS. Not that I'm terribly impressed with the quality of Imprint these days, but you know there's something arrogant about the title especially when a simple search in a thesaurus can come up with the title. Mr. Fleming decided to take a shot at mathNEWS stating that the word 'scienced' is "... typically directed towards MathNews wirters who have one again gotten their facts wrong, backwards, or negative, if that is even possible." I find the best way to call someone out for making mistakes is not to make one in the fucking process. It's mathNEWS not MathNews. It's a proper noun, capitals matter.
I find it also very strange that Imprint of all publications complains about getting their facts wrong as I have found Imprint to be a publication which not only gets facts wrong, but doesn't generally have the decency to admit to it afterward. Correcting mistakes from a newspaper is typically a good source of credibility. Which is why I usually regard Imprint from underneath my ass as toilet paper. On several occassions Imprint has reported incorrect facts, been called out on them and nary an apology nor correction was printed. mathNEWS at least tries to correct mistakes. Guess we've one up'd you, Imprint. Which has to hurt considering that you're a fucking newspaper and we're not.
In Vol. 31, Issue 28 in the article After the Math, writer Ryan Webb referred to current Math Senator Ajnu Clare as a male despite being very much a female. She received an e-mail apology; however, no written apology or even correction appeared in Imprint. In Vol. 30, Issue 26 Adrienne Raw wrote an article entitled Infusion Centre offers Backstage Pass where in one Julian Spillane was called an alumni. This isn't true as he discontinued his studies to dedicate his time to his company. I'm not even going to go into detail about ridiculous article in Vol. 30, Issue 31 writen by Sherif Soliman called This... is your Mac on Windows.
In conclusion: Imprint, you are the pot calling the kettle "cow" and expecting a fucking response. Mr. Fleming, the next time you want to call out mathNEWS for being incorrect, get your facts straight and you may seem less like an idiot. If I wore lipstick, I'd slather some on my ass, sit on a copy of this mathNEWS and hand a copy over to you proclaiming "My ass just kissed YOU!" Lastly, if you are going to insult mathNEWS do it well! This is the third person whose weak arguments have been torn to hell because they think that they have something intelligent to say against mathNEWS. mathNEWS! Not even a real newspaper. We rip into people for fun!
