OK, so now YOU are the one offering a very weak excuse. I'll make a deal with you. If you write it, and it gets published, *I* will personally make sure you get a copy. Deal?
There appears to be something self-contradictory here, caroline. You first do not believe their results, and then you said look, it also works well when explained using semi classical model. Now either you discard it completely and don't use it, or you buy it and deal with the fact that two different descriptions, at best, can explain it.
If you claim that the result DOES change, then put your money where your mouth is and send a rebuttal. If not, this goes into oblivion.
