    In some papers downloaded in October 2020 I found the following:

    1. 1.    We conclude, based on our review of the articles in this special issue and the broader literature, that it is time to stop using the term “statistically significant” entirely.
    2. 2.    Nor should variants such as “significantly different,” “p < 0.05,” and “nonsignificant” survive, whether expressed in words, by asterisks in a table, or in some other way.
    3. 3.    Regardless of whether it was ever useful, a declaration of “statistical significance” has today become meaningless.

    The special issue was by The American Statistician.

    I do not agree with these statements.

    Do some of the colleagues can make some comments?

    Howerver, I’d suggest you consider attaching a pdf or link or web address for link.  Hard to see what you are generating buzz about.
