We show that existing proofs of factorization imply the cancellation of certain multiladder contributions that Gotsman, Levin, and Maor had suggested would invalidate the basic factorization theorem in QCD. No modifications of the original argument are necessary, although the details of the example offer useful insight into the mechanisms of factorization.
