It is important for the stem cell field to gain clarity on STAP stem cells.
For this reason it is reasonable and at times helpful to critically discuss the data, past findings, concerns about elements of publications, and such.
However, it is not helpful and is in fact against the policy of this blog to engage in the comments in personal attacks, whether direct or implied.
So I am reminding commenters to adhere to the policy of not engaging in personal attacks as we discuss STAP. You also cannot link in your comment to other posts that have personal attacks.
I would also note that I am doing my best not to include in posts on this blog links to sites that might have personal attacks and if I do so inadvertently and later find that this could be the case, I will remove the link.
Let’s keep this constructive.
