Are online aliases ever justified in academic debate?

When a sock puppet comes calling, academic excellence is put at risk. My piece published in the Guardian Higher Education Network on the 7th June 2012 . It was interesting to see all the sock puppets who came out to play in the comments section of the piece. Seems like the Golb case is a  cause célèbre  for many out there. I would have responded with some factual corrections but I was suffering from chicken pox at the time this was published and thus hadn't the energy to get my thoughts online at that time.
