"Ghosts of reviewers past"

Googling something else entirely brought me this page by Edmund D. Brodie III, chronicling a few of the comments from manuscript reviews he's received over the years.

Personally I'd need a lot more self-confidence than I have to put that kind of stuff out there. Or maybe I'm just not far enough away yet to laugh about it. (Who am I kidding? Alpha Centauri wouldn't be far enough away.)

It illustrates very well why I always try to be as careful in my reviews as I am in my papers.
