Author’s note (in paper):
I thank Leif Nelson and Joe Simmons for invaluable support and contributions to this project from beginning to end. Nick Epley, Eric Johnson (Columbia), Christopher Van den Bulte, Hal Pashler and Henry L. Roediger, III helped dramatically improve the writing and positioning of the paper. Conversations with Rolf Zwaan, who headed the committee investigating Smeesters, proved instrumental for some of the analyses here presented. The co-authors of both Sanna and Smeesters were responsive and collaborative throughout, despite the obvious difficulty of confronting the possibility that a trusted friend, colleague and advisor had betrayed their trust and endangered their reputations for years.  This project did not benefit from the University of Michigan nor the University of Northern Carolina refusal to share the outcome of their investigations into possible misconduct by Lawrence Sanna.  I am exclusively responsible for all errors that remain.
