Censorship at the arXiv: endorsements, and even publication won’t matter. | Science 2.0

"Yes, the arXiv does in fact censor ideas that don’t fit the taste of the moderators.  Even if those ideas have been found acceptable enough to publish, or have at a conference.   …. Yet they accepted how many papers about faster than light neutrino physics based on a clearly obviously flawed set up?  Accepting those and not papers like mine which have a prayer of being right and propose an experiment to prove or disprove them is not scientific moderation.    What that is is art criticism based on ones feelings about an idea without reasons and logic.   That is the essence of censorship, not moderation."
