A preprint of this article has been published mid-december and after reading the title, I was highly interested in this topic. After reading the preprint manuscript, however, I was a little disappointed since it suffered from some major flaws. Regarding the importance of the topic, I gave detailed feedback (about two weeks before a revision was submitted to PeerJ). Unfortunately, this feedback seems not to have reached the authors (it was neither up/down-voted, nor were any of my concerns addressed in the revision).
My question is now: Why was my feedback not considered? Did the authors simply not get it? Or did they get it and decided intentionally not to consider it at all?
Whatever the case was - I am very interested in what the authors think about my feedback, because I thought the purpose of preprints was to get a broad feedback from more than some selected reviewers and to help to improve a manuscript substantially.
