    I got this one too. It was a new low, which I found hard to imagine.

  2. PLL says:

    I’m now trying to imagine legitimate papers/results that could be suitable for such a journal. Surely there must be some!

  3. John Baez says:

    The bastards left out ‘morphism’. Yet again, category theorists are left out in the cold.

  4. Johan says:

    I’m just jealous you guys got solicited and I didn’t.

  5. NDE says:

    At least they knew not to include mesomorphism and ectomorphism alongside endomorphism.

  6. Sometimes I read my Spam folder and these guys make my day then. I get a lot of spam _exactly_ from them. The only question I have here: do they really make considerable money with this?
