Overkill

I know that the journal is called Nano Letters, but using the "nano" prefix three times in the title of a paper is a little extreme.

Hehe, indeed. Also in the abstract the prefix can be found in almost every 8th word (18 times.

Lightweights! Pico-diddle periodic giant cavities of metal-organic frameworks. Nature 427 523 (2004), Adv. Funct. Mater. 16 520 (2006), Scripta Mater. 56 809 (2007).

DOE H2-storage whores, PhD pilfered your funding. Plate cavities with semiconductor or supercon and party. Electrolessly intercalate zirconium phosphonate planes. Low temps and high magnetic fields for confinement; get jiggy.

Rules have changed. Professionally managed research has process not product as king. Give Satan a big, er, small wet kiss.

I count 5 instances of the prefix in the first sentence of the abstract!

Gah. They really want funding dont they. If I used this as a NSF GRFP, then I so would've won. Damnit!
