Comparing Ancient Greek populations to modern Greeks and Italians

You know it goes to a certain extent, not to absurd extremes, like outright rejecting every academic paper that offends your sensibilities. You're the rule master of qpaDm, those academics should have consulted with you first. Give me a break man.

Whatever, I already creating a statistical robustness test script that will give an unbias interpretation of the result. I am basing the criteria on documentation about qpadm. I don't need you to tell me anything buddy.

I can't express to you how much I don't give a shit about your opinion, especially in contravention of credible sources.
What every academic paper, i wouldnt even call those papers, they are highschool project level of quality. I use outgroups similar to Southern arc, they completely debunk the unscientific anti-qpAdm rule papers you sent. If you have read qpAdm theory you would have known that you have to include outgroups that are ancestral to the left pops and that also help tell them apart or check for possible extra ancestries so qpAdm can give a bad p value if something extra is needed.

There is no offense in my sensibilities, are you projecting your own sensibilities? I'm just trying to explain to you that you are using qpAdm completely wrong. Try the Southern arc outgroups for the Mycenaeans on you and see what happens. The paper you sent are not credible sources, they are using qpAdm yet broke every important qpAdm rule, read qpAdm theory.
