Editors and reviewers are NOT gods

Fight when you can, against the journal editor or reviewers. Don't always assume they are right and you are wrong, even when it's about English expression.

ps. Why should I care? Here is the background info. A reviewer said "topography is not a driving mechanism," and asked the authors to use "topographic-induced xxx." Ok, I may also prefer "topographically-induced xxx," BUT it is NOT wrong to use "topographically-driven xxx." Don't argue with me, just google and see 15+ million citations are out there.
