Snarkiness -Or-

100 words on Why I love this Manuscript

Unsupported suppositions
Incomprehensible hypotheses
To our mind
Over-interpreted p-values:
If it’s statistically significant, it must be important
105 words when 10 will do.
The related statistics do not mean much.
Throw it all into a sack without controlling whether it belongs there.
Long meandering sentences with conjunctions that make no sense and verbs so far from their subjects you have no idea what is connected to what : always interrupted with a colon and frequently also with parentheses for self-referring references.*
We have the biggest database we know about.
Erroneous conclusions.

* I can’t even write that kind of sentence when I’m trying!
