In this short communication, a recent article published in the Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, which presents an erroneous conclusion based on incorrect calculations, is critically discussed. Since the observations made in that report are based on part of the content of a publication of my authorship, trying to reject some expressions I presented, obviously it came to my attention. This brief note emphasizes that some of the arguments used and the main conclusion stressed in the manuscript under discussion are wrong and must be dismissed.
