I note that you chose to defend the only “Journal” that does not have
the word “Parapsychology” or “Psychical” in it. Wise move. But I had a
look at the list of the 50 most cited scientific articles of all time,
and guess what, not one of them came out in any of the publications you
mentioned, not even your new and improved extended list. Then I thought
maybe I was being unfair, maybe I was being too demanding, so I looked
at a list of the most cited articles in just the past year in the
physical sciences, but again, none of your journals could be seen. Then
I searched for the most cited articles in chemistry and biology in the
past year and nothing had changed, they had still never heard of any of
your “journals”. Not one. And the number of times a real science journal
cited anything in one of yours could be counted on with the fingers of
one hand, and you would still have enough fingers to scratch your nose.

Conclusion: Your journals are shit.
