ESP as the subject of academic inquiry

Interesting debate at the NY Times about the decision of a peer-reviewed journal to publish a study supporting the notion of ESP.

Though the paper was peer reviewed, there are many critics who say the research is nonsense. A group of psychologists published a rebuttal paper in the same journal.How does the peer review process ensure good quality research? Are there factors that the standard process cannot take account of? Or is ESP simply a claim that should not be entertained as a subject of scientific inquiry?
