The worst thing that could possible be discussed in public is the trust issue. Science is not based on trust, it is personal relationships must be based on trust. Scientific claim cannot be true or wrong just bacause of trust. When reviewer gets papaer for review, he does not know the author of the paper let alone trust him or not, so paper is revewed not based on trust.
if you someone says at first we have to trust sceintific institution, a then take seriously their reseacrh then he gives credit to Flat Earthers, baecause their claim is only based lack of trust on NASA and other space agencies.
