Jim_Callahan: ... holy shiat, in around 2/3 of my published papers it was reviewer 3 that was the asshole making me tear out my hair over largely-irrelevant objections and too-finnicky inquiries into methodology.

Half-Life 3 confirmed, I guess.

// Probably has something to do with publications picking them in order and the first two tending to be in a closely-related enough field of study to already know the answers to the frustrating shiat requiring a lengthy explanation that the third guy in the not-quite-as-related field wants explained.  Kind of like how thesis review boards work.

From what I'm told at least, the mix tends to work out to, "Person that's liable to be enthusiastic/positive about the subject, person that's liable to be the storm crow and point out problems, both followed by, "That one dick that farking hates everything and everyone SO MUCH OMGZ!"  Article seems to bear that out - it's about as bad as the internet is for sheer "Fark you you random SOB!" when it's not actually "Fark you you person vaguely related institutionally to some guy that made me mad 18 years ago!"
