In academia is Pirsig's M.O.Q ignored, respected, or a joke?

Largely ignored, I think. I’ve certainly never heard it brought up by any academic philosophers, and from what little I know of it, I sincerely doubt it would be able to withstand the sort of rigorous scrutiny that academic philosophy demands.

UPDATE:

Over Twitter, Julian Sanchez adds:

@resnikoff sub-joke. Ppl mock Kenny G, not the tone-deaf kid in HS jazz band; why bother?
