Recently I became involved in an incident in which a manuscript was rejected on the advice of two anonymous reviewers and an anonymous associate editor. This re-activated my long-standing disgust at the entire system of anonymous reviews and pushed me—finally—into doing something about it. A few weeks or months ago, I read a similar protest, somewhere—one much more persuasive than I am likely to write—but my high-mileage brain has misplaced its provenance. Consider this a “high-five” to that misplaced author.
