"You told me that you had spoken to the editor of Statistical Science and had
recommended to him that the paper submitted by Rips et al to that journal be published, with
the proviso that a discussion by an independent discussant also be included."

"Although the referees thought carefully about possible sources of error in the work, no
one tried to reanalyze the data carefully and independently to try to uncover the presumed

subtle flaw in their methodology."
