Abstract

I was asked by IPMR to comment on the above article. As a prior blind reviewer of this article, I recommended that this paper "not be accepted by IPMR for publication." Other reviewers disagreed and the paper was published. What follows is a commentary for future researchers, not a paper review. Where relevant, I re-address certain original concerns not met in the updated version. The following paragraphs are not meant to diminish or dismiss an important article. Dr. Talvitie has gone out on a limb. More of us need to find such limbs, give them a bounce, and see if they hold. Dr. Talvitie should be congratulated for allowing his already-published paper to be utilized in such a manner. Not all authors would be so brave.
