Reinhold et al. (Science, 1 May 2020, p. 518) provided two possible
interpretations of measurements showing that the Sun is less active than other
solar-like stars. We argue that one of those interpretations anticipates the
observed differences between the properties of their two stellar samples. This
suggests that solar-like stars become permanently less variable beyond a
specific evolutionary phase.
