    Call me cynical but I wonder whether perhaps they posted a correction note because it allowed them claim better results. I quite often point out errors to authors but only rarely are corrections published.

    Indeed. I don't recall other authors or journals publishing corrections so freely, even when blatant errors are highlighted by the public.

    A little OT, but I just stumbled upon this thread and it reminded me of White and Barts saying that these results (though not the paper) showed that their service gained the best results in the UK. How bad must some of the other GET centres have been then? If they're able to use claims about being the best to promote themselves, patients should also be allowed to know which services were the worst, by these standards.
