We thank the Editor, Tommaso Proietti, for the invitation to write a discussion paper and for encouraging such a wide ranging discussion. We also thank the Associate Editor in charge of the discussion, Alessio Farcomeni, for his very careful work.
We feel humbled by the quantity of insightful comments stimulated by our paper and that so many prominent researchers in the field of robust statistics were kind enough to contribute to the discussion. We are also highly surprised (and very glad) to see that the length of the discussion is twice the length of the original paper!
We thank all the discussants for their supportive comments and for their appreciation of our work. Therefore, we take the discussion as a good sign that the “philosophy” of monitoring will have more fans in the future. We believe that the discussions include contributions that are worth considering per se: improvements of existing methodologies; extensions to multi-parameter monitoring; a new \(\rho \)
