This Brownstein/Moffat paper (arXiv:astro-ph/0702146v3, 13 Sep 2007)) looks interesting to me but it's too deep for me to really understand. The gist of it seems to be:
The alternative to the dark matter paradigm is to modify the Newtonian 1/r2 gravitational force law so that the ordinary (visible) baryonic matter accounts for the observed gravitational effect.

Does this paper have any merit?
