Nature: stealing from Peter?

This Nature article leaves me uncomfortable.

As Retractionwatch notes, Nature retracts articles far more often than most other journals.

Is it really time to congratulate ourselves for detecting more manuscripts that need to be retracted?

Or, rather, should we stop publishing these manuscripts in the first place?

Nature, you have a conflict of interest here.
