Huh... there's irony for you.

I just discovered that David Dunning of Dunning-Krueger fame works at... Cornell.

Quote
The research, led by David Dunning, a psychologist at Cornell University, shows that incompetent people are inherently unable to judge the competence of other people, or the quality of those people’s ideas. For example, if people lack expertise on tax reform, it is very difficult for them to identify the candidates who are actual experts. They simply lack the mental tools needed to make meaningful judgments.

Ignored by those who can't provide evidence for their claims.
