Just when I think I will not find any more ridiculous things hiding in academia.....
A recent thread on twitter addressed a population of academics (not sure if it was science) who are distressed when the peer review of their manuscripts is insufficiently vigorous/critical.
If one of your research papers was accepted for publication, but you felt that the peer review standards were insufficient and not critical enough, would you say anything to the Editor about it?

This is totally outside of my experience. I can't imagine ever complaining to an Editor of a journal that the review was too soft after getting an accept or invitation to revise.
People are weird though.
