Due to recent new events, this hypothesis has come up again. My initial thoughts over at my (mostly dormant) blog,  Part 1 of 2: I welcome comments as always, but would prefer them over there than over here. :)

So, I finally decided to start a proper blog: So far, all I have is an introductory post, but I should be posting a series of posts on Dreadnoughtus in the next few days. Stay tuned! -Zach

Your skeletal reconstructions have that rare organic quality that is so often lacking in scientific illustrations of their kind. Fantastic work.
Thanks for noticing, it's much appreciated!
Zach, I'm currently writing a paper on what I believe is a new Titanosaur (yay!) that I want to get published into PeerJ, and I need two reviewers. Would you like to be one? I've already come up with the name, entered it into Zoobank, and wrote out most of the paper's base already. The specimen isn't all too impressive, but I think it's worthy enough of a new genus. Besides, you could always end up being a co-author if it helps you get your name out there.
Unfortunately, I do not have a lot of spare time at present, so not sure I could provide a formal review, but if you intend to submit it to the preprints, I would be willing to make some short comments at that time. Same issue with co-authoring, unfortunately do not have much time for that either. It would depend on what exact kind of involvement would be needed.
Oh, that's okay. I plan on a full published peer-reviewed article. Do you know anyone else who would be willing to review for me (I've already contacted Nima, so anyone else)?
I know that anyone I would suggest are also quite busy, so I'm afraid I'm not of much help. Sorry :(

You have some nice skeletals.
