An Odd Paper?

Народ наезжает на "странную" статью в ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces:
http://blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline/archives/2017/11/17/an-odd-paper
https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsami.6b14047

"...But then you start reading the body of the paper, and here’s how that goes:

“As above, so below”, Hermes Trismegistus inscribed on a piece of emerald stone known as Tabula Smaragdina five millennia ago, defining the central motto of alchemists all the world over. Correspondingly, the idea of a direct correlation between microcosmic and macrocosmic relationships inspired the experimentation of chemists before the days of atomistic empiricism to a great extent. Albeit largely neglected in the present times, here we wish to revitalize it. . .

Alchemy. OK, Newton went in for it, as John Maynard Keynes discovered to his consternation when he read a collection of Newton’s papers from his Cambridge years that had been mostly sealed until 1936. But it’s unusual, to say the least, to lead off a materials science paper with a nod to Hermes Trismegistus.

Your manuscript should not, as a rule, be hard to distinguish from the work of someone who is beginning to lose their grip on reality. This may be enthusiastic prose, or it may be something else, and that’s the problem with including so many flights of fancy. At the very least, it can give your readers a reason not to take you seriously. I’d be interested in hearing reader reactions: am I overreacting, or not?"

Там у статьи ТРИ автора, а не один. И ясно, что якобы "фрик" там вот этот мужик:

Они еще вот это его не прочитали: http://www.postdocjournal.com/file_journal/517_46931545.pdf

Что вообще за наезд на свободу слова? :)
