So a Cornell professor publishing a peer-reviewed paper in one of the 
most prestigious journals of his discipline fails the test of being 
somebody you respect, simply because you don't like his results. The 
term "barricaded prejudice" comes to mind. At this point you're just 
being ridiculous. Awaiting further replication is sensible; implying 
that Bem and the journal's reviewers and editors are liars and idiots 
is... not.
