Here it is. Directly from the "Statistician to the Stars" William M. Briggs who is a respected expert on science and statistics (that not everyone agrees with but that can be said of anyone in the field).

He says it is preposterous that pro-vaccine "scientists" refuse to engage with me in a civil verbal debate. There is nothing requiring debates to done in the peer-review literature. In fact, Briggs argues that such arguments are preposterous.

We agreed on every point.

We also went through all the attempts to debunk my analysis posted by Dr. Jonathan Laxton on X. Laxton won't do a live dialog and insists on taking pot shots from the sidelines. Briggs basically frowns on this approach; if you want to resolve a disagreement, this is a very inefficient approach. We go through all of Laxton's 5 objections.
