    (They write the review has been withdrawn in 2015, yet the published version is from 2017.) :emoji_thinking:

    I guess this is why the timeline seems off? Does this mean they put up the new version that didn't meet their expectations - after they had made the decision of withdraw....?

    The word appropriate, and its general sentiment, has been doing a lot of heavy lifting lately, up to and including *checks notes* torture, threat of more torture, gaslighting and what could best be described as thoughtcrime.

    It would be really, really awesome if the (far larger number of) sane medical professionals out there took a little more interest in what the loopier members of their profession are doing and maybe calm down a bit with the magical thinking. Objective evidence, testable hypotheses, falsifiability, keeping biases in check, all good things that cannot be put aside without harmful consequences.
