Reviewer Comments: Linear Space and Long Fingers

The latest suite of JSR reviews has included a number of “gems.”  As always, we appreciate the humor that reviewers bring to the process, intentionally or unintentionally.  Comments include:

“Basically reflux as generally used to describe fluid flow (rather than indigestion!) refers to….”

“The veracity of this statement if difficult to evaluate in linear space.” [Editor’s Note: Huh?]

“Figures 4, 5, and 6 are overly redundant.” [as opposed to un-overly redundant?]

“The authors present some interesting and NEW data and interpretations, but the manuscript in its current version is something I wouldn't accept from a grad student as a class assignment.”

And this one really gave us pause: “The provenance of these voluminous clastics have been widely debated, with most long fingering the Ancestral Rocky Mountains…” 

Ouch!  Poor Ancestral Rocky Mountains!
