I contacted the authors with some questions a few months back because their website included some apparently interesting info, but with inadequate explanation of how they had defined things, and it looked like the numbers didn't stack up (but I couldn't be sure because things weren't defined clearly enough)

They didn't reply.

i've also contacted them and they didn't reply. It's a bit unclear how they got to the rankings they did - there's not much explanation given.

Thanks, good to know, but a bit dispiriting.
