I can't speculate why the authors stopped short, but I can say that their decision renders this paper almost worthless.

So I can have meaningful dialog with someone who can't spell "rubbish". Or did you mean, "radish"?

This is exactly what I'd expect from a non-thinking, knee-jerking reactionary who quotes the titles and abstracts of articles that they've never read.

Try reading the paper and then come back.

nm - RG is actually quite appropriate for most low-brow autism research. If it's presented in a complicated enough manner, competence will be assumed.
