Please, don't pretend you don't understand my question and answer one
I'm not interested in.
You made a specific strong statement -- still quoted above.  Either,
it was a pure speculation from your part, or you have factual data to
back it up.  If the latter, please make them public -- in the interest
of rigor and openness as you promote.
I am very sorry but I don't understand at all what kind of "factual data" you want me to provide, if it's not estimates about software used, or causes of errors in experiments. I gave my interpretation about reactions I got from colleagues, in discussions that occurred along many years. If you don't agree with my interpretation, that's perfectly OK for me. Just next time, please try to explain more precisely what you mean, if you want precise answers. Your questions are too sketchy for me to understand.
 Otherwise, let's drop it
Yes, please.

Best wishes,
