James Wootton commented on A loophole in quantum error correction

Do any fault-tolerance theorems claim to hold for small codes without repeated measurement, as is the case in these supposed counter examples?

The assumption that no-one ever thought about this noise before is the faulty one here.

"Ni." would be slightly shorter, but some may find it offensive.

I think I was mostly reacting to where he tries to sell the importance of the work.

>Fault tolerant theorems show that an arbitrary good precision can be obtained using a limited amount of hardware...we unveil the role of an implicit assumption made in these mathematical theorems: the ability to perform quantum measurements with infinite precision.
