    I am not surprised. Statistics and probability seem to be reduced to folklore theorems and rules of thumb even in branches of quantitative science.

    Well that isn't very encouraging. Then again I have witnessed papers get rejected from other journals where the editor had requested "additional information" that was in the paper already.
