They have pick-up lines.
A purr by males appeared to signify the male was trying his luck to mate a desirable female. High frequency cries and screams were associated with disagreements, when males jostled to escort females during migration, she said.
Oh, and they're racist.
A wop sound was common when mothers were together with their young. "The wop was probably one of the most common sounds I heard, probably signifying a mum-calf contact call," she said.
I think Ahab got your link, Doug.

Australian scientists studying humpback whales sounds say they have begun to decode the whale's mysterious communication system,
One wonders if humpback whales have made any progress on decoding the Australian's mysterious communication system.
why would they bother? they know exactly what the Australians human(hemmar)oids are communicating among themselves, as impact upon the biosphere...calling us 'human hemmar-oids' is a little whale joke that's been making the rounds for the last 10 thousand years (and it's still funny!)

That explains all the unsolved Rubik's Cubes at the bottom of the ocean.

the corruption of the scientific community stems from the well nurtured rot in the body politic. The GHG controversy, in part, has triggered the typical rightwing reaction, and highlighting questionable studies proving/disproving the earth's flat or not is just a symptom, possibly, of the way our system rewards the loudest, the pushiest, the thickest skinned and oftentimes the sneakiest back stabber-with-a-secret-agenda; maybe a perfect description of rightwingers(!) Listening to CBC, the deaths of troops is being used to demand SUPPORT for the criminal regimes of junyer bush and stevie harpie playing with 1/2 wit emotions, while also buying them time in power. These 'wars' against nations which haven't even got armies or navies or legit governments and which cost today's idealistic soldiers their health/well being etc are just as brainless as the 'great war' 90 years ago (ie 16 thousand Canadians were casualties in the battle for Passchendale? Why in hell did they want to capture Passchendale? Did any of them even know what Passchendale was? Why isn't science trying to explain that insane stupid wasteful silly hidden in public sight sham? And who pays the taxes to fund it?)EVERYTHING seems to go back to the fact corruption has been very good for the corrupters, and the newsmedia is where they can be seen in action. The humpback whales are wise to have as little as possible to do with us
The hotter the field of research the more likely its published findings should be viewed skeptically, he determined.
Well, that's really the whole point to research, that people view it sceptically. The problem isn't the research, it's the lack of informed scepticism one doesn't find, particularly in the social *ahem* sciences.
Identified errors in data gathering, or statistical analysis doesn't mean the research was necessarily in "error" because the illumination of the errors typically point us to a new and better understanding.
Unless the research was done so poorly, no such illuminations result. This is the situation where scientists use the dismissing phrase "not even wrong".
