Abstract: There is a conception that Boltzmann-Gibbs statistics cannot yield the longtail distribution. This is the justification for the intensive research ofnonextensive entropies i.e. Tsallis entropy and others. Here the error thatcaused this misconception is explained and it is shown that a long taildistribution exists in equilibrium thermodynamics for more than a century.
