Another article from Science magazine saying the same things but a bit more negative:
But good to see it is getting picked up. I would have thought Science magazine would have been more critical about witholding of the paper.
I'm just shocked that so many people seemed to think that fudging the research in order to achieve consensus (???) is a reasonable thing to do.
I don't see anybody saying that.
I am shocked and disappointed at how easily some here have reflexively flipped straight into uncritical conspiracy mode to try to 'explain' this temporary hold up. It does not help our cause to think like that.
they do need to get things in order before releasing information into the public sphere where it will be picked up by the media. Because once it's out there, there is no taking it back. And it's going to get a little crazy. People will want a test, NOW, they are going to want to talk to there doctors about this, NOW (boy that's going to be reallllllly interesting.) They are going to want to know what it means if they are positive, NOW, they are going to freak because it can be passed on to children and given to partners and most of all people are going to want treatment NOW!
