Insofar as it calls for the Editorial Board of the Journal of Neuroscience to explain why it banned three authors from future submissions. As I said on the prior post, this step is unusual and seems on the face of it to be extreme.
I also said I could see justification for the decision to retract the paper. I say that also could stand some explanation, given the public defense and local University review decision.
