The Royal Society seems to have got itself into a bit of a pickle over an article it published back in 2007, which claimed that a rare snail in the Seychelles had been forced into extinction, a later paper claiming that this was due to climate change.
After the original claim was made, a rebuttal was issued, which the Royal Society refused to publish.
Now, it seems the snail in question has been rediscovered.
But the Royal Society is still refusing to publish the rebuttal because it is now seven years old.
Correcting the record is for wimps, it seems.
