Now I understand. You are not (primarily) criticizing the technical
results that they get, but the process by which they obtain them.

I think it is confusing that you apparently disagree with the results
based on the process in which they've been produced. While I can
understand the criticism, I'd agree it is na´ve to assume that
anything will likely change in that respect in foreseeable future.

Furthermore, I cannot agree that the process is closed - nor do I see
reasonable alternatives.
