Re: Time to be pedantic

Excellent comment, particularly concerning the statistics. Statistical errors seem to be one of the most common reasons for retractions and corrections of scientific studies. It would be nice if all studies could include a professional statistician, since many of the issues are not at all obvious to non statisticians.
