Abstract

I congratulate the authors for their interesting paper. However, it seems that the Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling scheme that was used results in extremely slow mixing, requiring 2 million iterations with only every 1000th iteration being used. One aspect of this slow mixing relates to a problem that was encountered by Leslie et al. (2006).
