can we talk about this paper whose results were supposedly wrong the first time around? why are they only issuing a corrigendum instead of a full retraction?!!

Most likely the math dude's fault. Mathematicians don't understand observational data, suck at data management, and don't care about pesky nuisances like "listwise deletion."
I work with a lot of physicists, mathematicians, and computer scientists. This characterization is basically true. They’re interested in computational models. They only care about real-world data as a way of “validating” their models.
YL seems to do careful, rigorous work otherwise.
