On 'allostasis and allostatic load'. --Anthony.Sebastian 03:55, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Personal comment about extreme use of annotations

Tony, I know absolutely nothing about Allostasis and I don't intend to make any copy edits. Nor do I intend to make any comments other than this one personal comment:

I don't believe it is proper for any encyclopedic or professional journal to have an article in which the references include far more text than does the main body of the article ... as this one does. That is, again simply a personal opinion, using annotation of references as extremely beyond all reasonable definitions of annotation. Milton Beychok 22:39, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
