Allegedly.

The author complains bitterly about 'confirmatory bias' by others.
This is ironic, when one looks at the References list - eleven of the
(only) eighteen references are Lingham-Soliar's own papers!

The final paragraph of this 'corrected proof' is pure snark, and
unbecoming of a scientific journal.
