comment Dates on degrees don’t make sense – will people care?
I received my PhD degree two and half years after the defence, and it's never come up as an issue.

comment Identity of a supposed anonymous referee revealed through “Description” of the report
@DavidRicherby Nothing shady. The authors did not do anything wrong. If it's a mistake, it's a mistake of either the Editor, the reviewer or the system they work in. I don't see any reason why the authors should risk their article being badly treated by anyone involved.

I would add: Notify the Editor after the paper is published. Otherwise you risk some complications. You did not do anything wrong (especially, you did not actively search for who the referee was), and the editor could over-react in some way and even blame you or change his attitude towards you.

comment Taking an academic pseudonym?
I like the answer. I would add one thing to "applying": Apply under your real name for legal reasons, but mention both your civil and academic name up-front in your CV to avoid confusion.

answered Some authors can use variants of their last names in two different publications. How does one write their last name when citing both inline?

comment Why are (galley) proof requests given such a short deadline?
@E.P. Well, I tried to explain how it is in some journals. Of course, you can answer by swearing over the publishers bullying the authors, but I'm not sure it makes any sense :-)
