Ten ghost spectra which simulate the absorption-line spectrum of the QSO 4C 05.34 (0805+046) are generated on a computer and analyzed according to the rules of Bahcall and Goldsmith. The results conclusively show that the number and properties of the absorption redshift systems proposed by Bahcall and Goldsmith are insignificantly different from those that would be expected from chance coincidences.
