During my reviewing work I received insults: "...we were shocked about the obvious and impertinent attempt of one of the reviewers (we have strong indications that this reviewer is P.

Further, they contain misquotations, incorrect abstruse statements, and even untruths..."

Off course I replied: typically a short reply (69kb), a long reply (352kb)... However I prefer to give my opinion in the international diplomatic language (sorry for those who do not understand it: if I find a good translation I will put it on this page):
Le détail de la polémique est certainement de peu d'intérêt scientifique: par le ton qu'ils emploient les auteurs de ces insultes se déconsidèrent. Si leurs arguments étaient à la hauteur de leur coup de sang, il leur aurait était facile de nous convaincre de leur justesse; voir le livre : Chemical Thermodynamics of Neptunium and Plutonium.
