First Draft of Peer-Review Rebuttal Just Says “Fuck Off”

San Diego, CA – When Clive James, genomic scientist at the San Diego Genomics Institute sat down to write a rebuttal of the reviews he received last week, all he could think of writing were the words “fuck off”.

“It seemed to be the most appropriate thing to write”, said Dr. James “at least, it was heart-felt”.

“After discussing it with my colleagues, I have expanded my rebuttalĀ and softened it somewhat”

“Now my rebuttal profusely thanks the reviewers for such a wonderful job, compliments them on their astute observations that, of course, made the manuscript so much better and I hope that my changes will convince them of the importance of my paper.”

“I still preferred the first draft”.
