    Here is the latest entry in the CMB anisotropy derby:
    The Multipole Vectors of WMAP, and their frames and invariants

    The authors, Land and Magueijo, are prominent among the more active researchers in this arena. They apply an apparently more sophisticated analytical approach to some of the more interesting anomolies, and the paper concludes with:

    We find no evidence for inherent anisotropy or Non-Gaussianity.

    Of course one should avoid reading too much into that before reading the text that precedes it.

    The final paragraph from that paper
    Rather inconclusive then.

    Looks to me that we have reached a point of duelling methodologies where anything striking carries a rich smell of artifact.
