At Your Leisure

In the next installment of the arxiv adventures, let us look at what happened to the paper by Carl that won an honourable mention in the Gravity Research Foundation competition this year. Here it is:

C. A. Brannen
The force of gravity in Schwarzschild and Gullstrand-Painlevé coordinates
Physics > General Physics

That is, on the crackpot physics arxiv, rather than the gravity arxiv where it was submitted, and where poor Carl, after some difficulty in trying to upload the paper, was told that he might now upload a version at his leisure. That's right, folks. Now papers that are sanctioned by professionals are being put onto this blacklist arxiv, which everybody knows that nobody reads. Are you going to complain about it? Do something about it? No, you're not, are you.

TD suggested to me that we find a well known author to submit a paper for us in their name. It's worth a shot. Any takers?

Well, you should advertise it more openly, and request private answers! Put up a post with these lines and I will link to it.

As we know, archive minders have openly Stalinist beliefs.
