Hi, A while ago I discussed here about a paper I wrote, which you can find on the arxiv: quant-ph/0505059 I submitted it to the Royal Society, and I received a notification of rejection, with the following comments from the referees, might be of interest for those who participated in the discussion. The emphasis is mine. First referee: The second referee: On a personal note, although this paper was a bit outside of my field and thus "for fun", in my field too, I had several rejections of similar kind, which always make me think that the referee has missed the point I was trying to make (which must be due to the way I wrote it up, somehow). The only point I tried to make was a logical one, as seems to be recognized by the first referee only, but then he seems to miss the point that in the end of the day, we want a theory that spits out results that are given by the PP, whether or not we take that "as primitive". So I don't see why considering the PP "as primitive" makes the reasoning "not relevant". The second referee seems to have understood this (that we have to rely on empirical data to endorse the PP), but he seems to have missed the point I was making a logical claim, and seems to concentrate on the minor remark when I said that "this APP seems to be the most natural probability rule going with MWI". The very argument that some have tried to MODIFY QM introducing non-linear decoherence is *exactly what I claim*: that you need an extra hypothesis with unitary QM if you want to derive the PP. Finally, the proposition of revision, namely to limit myself to the consequences of the APP, take away the essential point of the paper which simply stated: since two different probability rules, the APP, and the PP, are both compatible with unitary QM, you cannot derive the PP logically from unitary QM without introducing an extra hypothesis. The only truely valid critique I find here, is the one of the first referee who finds that my paper is not sufficiently different from Barnum's paper (something I ignored) - which is of course a valid reason of rejection (which I emphasised in red). Most other points seem to miss the issue of the paper, I have the impression, and focus on details which are not relevant to the main point made. This often happens to me when I receive referee reports. Do others also have this impression, or am I such a terrible author ?
