    The paper's usage of the term "Byzantine" is debated as violating the iClear code of ethics, but the authors argue it is a technical term.
    • Constructive criticism is more helpful than trivial suggestions when reviewing academic work.
    • The paper should have compared with non-publicly available models, but there is a debate on whether it is necessary to have access to someone's model to properly compare it.
    • Leaving certain things out can make your method appear better in comparison to closed source competitors, and the term "byzantine" is an established technical term.
    • The debate revolves around the usage of the term "Byzantine" in the paper, with the reviewers arguing that it violates the iClear code of ethics, while the authors claim it is a technical term and not disparaging to anyone.
  • 🚨
    A reviewer held a paper hostage until the authors changed the word "Byzantine," raising awareness of potential ethical issues in research.
    • A reviewer gave a low score to a paper and held it hostage until the authors changed the word "Byzantine," even though the authors didn't agree that any other term would do the technical nature, and the reviewer wanted the paper to contain a discussion of why the word Byzantine is not appropriate.
    • The use of a certain word in research is not yet a major ethics issue, but the discussion between reviewers and authors raises awareness of a potentially emerging issue.
    • The reviewer pointed out a violation of the iClear code of ethics, but the program chairs ultimately approved the paper, leading to controversy in the community.
    • Reviewer's complaints about potential ethical issues in a community are being dismissed, setting a precedent for future problems.
