Hm as I underststand it, far reaching new claims (high originality score), are no good if they can not be backed up by a corresponding accurate (at best mathematical) justification and reasoning.
For example the ideas in the first ER/EPR paper are very original and they are soundly backed up by already accepted mathematical/theoretical knowledge. So I voted (+1,+1) on that one based on Lumo's review.
But far reaching claims, for example to have found a new ToE or being able to generally dispense with the concept of renormaliztion, may be original, but if the argument or calculations the author applies are weak and out of thin air or even worse, contradict established theoretical / experimental knowledge, the final score should IMHO be negative for such (+1,-1) papers
So in my opinion, the formula behaves as it should concerning papers with positive originality score, as far reaching claims or new ideas (originality +1) are only rated positive if they are soundly backed up and do not contradict established knowledge. To me this seems a good way to punish crackpots, wannabe new Einsteins, crazy surfer dudes, etc who want to overthrow establised knowledge for no good reason for example.
But I noted a strange (possibly wrong behavior) of the formula in another situation. I will further investigate this and then mention it in this thread too....
