About this post: Wow, your mods are piece of work. Tom Mattson told me I could post a question in the forum, after I told him that I disagreed with the off-base reasons for a rejection of a paper I submittted to the IR forum. I conclude: - Your mods need better communication among them. - I followed all the rules here to the letter. - The thread did not run its course--that's a joke. The thread was in the thick of resolving issues, with posters learning and teaching, and the discussion was for the most part polite and spirited. - The IR forum seems to be only a token nod to open-mindedness, because the reviews are bad based on my experience, and it allows for no rebuttal in that case (albeit that's no worse than formal journals). The comments I got on my paper were illogical--to use an analogy, it's like I wrote a story about bears and got a rejection that says "tigers aren't black". The mod felt my title, "A Flaw of General Relativity", was offensive. Now that's scientific. Sour grapes? You be the judge. And by all means feel free to let me know that I was completely wrong in the other thread, in this one in which I can't respond to your points.
