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!
