comment ElGamal signature without calculating the inverse
I'm assuming that the new scheme just needs to look secure, not actually be any good. Presumably if one could remove an expensive modular inverse without security consequences, it would have already been done.

@D.W.: I think if you read the section of the wikipedia article titled "History" you'll see the claims made quite clearly.

comment Does NTRU decrypt correctly now?
The ">" is used to emphasize the claim. It is not a direct quote. As near as I can tell the decryption failures are common (1 in 10000 for a standardized version of NTRU), are non-recoverable as in the message is simply gone, and are important in several attacks that recover the private key by seeing if a valid ciphertext runs into the decryption failure problem.
