Gabi,
Mike probably reacts this way to all reviewers!
par for the course means this is what you expect
If you ever take up the Scottish game - golf, a par is
what you expect to get on each hole. So you get the
phrase of some number under par (the average or expected).
Maybe you try one of the public golf courses in your area one day!
Cheers
Phil

Hi Phil, I;ll have a sleep over it, probably most of it is ok, and
I am just suffering from bruised ego which is always a long-term benefit
(at least catholics tend to be encouraged to believe that :)
I think its not that bad, it frustrates since the review seems a bit
of a waste of energy and I was just wondering if MIke just reacts like
this to reviews, or if possibly mine really wasnt all that useful.
Sorry for dumping on you!! (what does par for the course mean?)
Gabi
Quoting Phil Jones <p.jonesatXYZxyz.ac.uk>:

Gabi,
I think this is par for the course. See what Tom thinks. Tom can
probably write you a good response letter to the editor saying that
the author hasn't taken any of my comments into account. It seems
that the point of a review .... is pointless.
Cheers
Phil

Hi Phil, just looking at Mikes responses to my review of the PNAS
paper - is it normal for Mike
to just pretty much tell the reviewer reviewer is clueless, or
possibly I really am clueless?
:)
cheers, next IDAG meeting timing coming tomorrow or friday
Gabi
