Our dislike and distain for steev price’s efforts at running a rug “website” and pawning himself off as someone in the know about rugs is legendary.
So are, but to a far lesser extent, price’s efforts at dissing us and what we have done. Too bad anyone with even half a brain could realize the validity of the former and ridiculousness of the latter.
We have rebuked and critiqued price’s dumb as rocks ideas and opinions about rugs, as well as his alleged accomplishments in his chosen field of endeavor - physiology.
Today, for a laugh, we revisited the website for the university where price “teaches” to see if there are any changes to his faculty listing.
Here’s what we read. Please remember this was written by price, himself, and is his virtual CV:
I closed my laboratory in 1995. Since that time, I have devoted most of my efforts to teaching, although I still informally consult and review manuscript and grant applications.
My research was directed toward developing an understanding of receptor mechanisms in the chemical senses, taste and smell. Chemoreception is among the most primitive of cell properties and has been adapted to specialized sensory systems in vertebrates. The molecular basis of detection and recognition of stimulus chemicals in these systems includes specific receptor proteins as well as more or less nonspecific irritation of neurons as explanations for chemoreception.

RK has commented on price’s un-illustrious academic career before and no need to revisit this issue. However, any “scientist” who has the nerve to call himself a “scientist” should have a lab to work in and should, quite understandably, be involved in research.
While price is no spring chicken, he still should be interested in contributing to his chosen field through investigation and research.
Clearly sock-puppet steev doesn’t do this.
We’d believe firstly he can’t, as his intellectual capacities as we have seen them probably are his biggest stumbling block.
Then, of course, there is his ego and belief he is a “scientist” and not a baby-sitter for undergrads, as we have characterized him.
Surely price’s contributions to the world of oriental rugs are as worthless and invisible as his contributions to his chosen area of science.
There is little doubt price is a less than average scientist.
There is even less he is anything but a rug buffoon and idiot.
Why he continues the charade of trying to prove differently is nothing more than a joke and comedy act.
Get off the net, steev, and, instead of spending time “moderating” your rug-sandbox website, re-open your lab and try to make some contribution to science.
Your efforts in rugdom are nil and perhaps you might, since you do have a doctorate degree in physiology, be better equipped to make some small contribution there. Though we doubt this highly, as well.
