I think this answers your main question.

The answer to your other question, about why parapsychologists do not
publish more often in other journals, is (a) For the same reason that
particle physicists do not normally publish in the Warwickshire
Pig-Breeders' Gazette, and (b) Because of nonscientific bigotry of the
sort your so vividly displaying.
