Yeah I ain't a scientist. Grew up with 'em, know 'em, and there's a definite "I don't do it this way so nobody I respect does it this way, and anybody I don't respect isn't really a scientist."

Anyone with any experience in political forensics, however, goes "the Chinese hid a whole Tienamen Square from themselves."

Openness is supposed to be the greatest feature of Western science. It turns into a bug very quickly when dealing with malevolent actors.
