This is quite the ride from @GidMK. My favorite quote: "It turns out that the authors uploaded the actual data they used for the study onto an online repository. While the data is locked, our hero Jack managed to guess the password to the file — 1234 — and get access" twitter.com/GidMK/status/1…

Similarly, if you include junk studies in a meta-analysis, you're going to get junk results.
