Hi,
Recently, a comment was published in Hydrology and Earth System Science - Discussion (HESS-D) (https://www.hydrol-earth-syst-sci-discuss.net/hess-2018-187/) on an article published in the same journal (HESS) in 2018 (https://www.hydrol-earth-syst-sci.net/22/595/2018/hess-22-595-2018.html). The nature of the comment does not contribute to constructive scientific debate. It is more like a rant, a vicious attack on the authors and their expertise, rather than on their work. This has evoked serious reactions from the hydrologic community (8 short comments in the last 3 days). I feel it is important for the Indian hydrologic community to be aware of such trolling and scientific harassments (thanks to Nandita Basu for pointing it out https://twitter.com/nanditabasu2/status/997325183844143104), and would request people to comment if they feel the need for it. Of course, all this is my personal opinion.
