I do the same all the time.  I concur; their methodology looks pretty
bogus to me, too. 

I notice that the actual paper even admits this issue in its fourth
paragraph, and then simply dismisses it  -- without substantiation or
evidence -- as self-evidently wrong.  That doesn't speak well for the
quality of their results.
