Since I'm not entirely sure what your comment is whining about:

1) Phys.org is a regurgitater of press releases from university PR depts. The latter generally just copy figures from the papers they're blathering about because they don't come close to understanding them well enough (or at all) to select anything appropriate. PR regurgitators have similar levels of institutional ignorance, but less ability to talk to the authors to try and get any additional details so we get an ugly graphic intended to communicate data to others scientists not a pretty picture.

2) No, they're not the first people to run any BH merger sims, what they're trying to do is to create a much larger library of mergers (varying in input parameters) because the way Ligo/Virgo figure out what they've detected is to compare the signal their instruments record against existing simulations to see what is the closest match.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
