The comments to this post on Invisible Adjunct are interesting, if not exactly enlightening, except sociologically. To me, they say that postmodernism in academia is no longer fashionable. Fashionable people don't respond to ridicule by getting defensive: those who ridicule them are automatically perceived as old fogeys, regardless of the merits of the case, and all they have to do is sneer. This used to be true of postmodernists, but no longer.
