A few years ago, back in the days when I used actually to post regularly here, I dropped a reference in the comments to a certain low-blow, embarrassing book review [PDF] that a friend of mine suffered in the pages of The Journal of Theological Studies. These were the heady days before Twitter took off, though, so the scandal of it all was fairly muted, and relegated mostly to a few follow-up comments.
I can only hope now that Professor (Emeritus) Elliott has been told that his reviews are no longer welcome. At least then the stinky odor will have not only been identified but also wiped up.
In any event, I encourage you to read the review in all its vindictive glory. It will make you feel a lot better about the hatchet jobs done to your work.
