One lesson I have learnt from this debate is about the art of deflection. RM first tell us that PK got it wrong and announce this widely and prominently. Then we learn that it was in fact RM who goofed up and that PK’s results still hold. But Roodman and supporters turn it all back on PK—blaming them for RM’s mistake! And when a third party such as myself points out that PK’s reputation has been salvaged, I am deemed to have been “enlisted” by PK “in a blatant effort to discredit RM.” Remarkable!
