Dear Prof D,

Thank you for your submission "Are There Too Many Footnotes In Journal Articles?"  But we are rejecting it because it did not contain enough footnotes.1,2,3,4,5,6,7


1.  How many footnotes are enough?
2.  That is a question you didn't answer.
3.  How will we ever know?
4.  Probably less than ten per paragraph.
5.  And it should also be a prime number.
6.  And as many as possible given constraints 4 & 5.
7.  Therefore 7.
