Dear Profs H and V:
Thank you very much for your submission "Universal Rejection as an Editing Policy to Avoid the Publication Bias" to the Journal of Universal Rejection.
The piece was brilliant, a real breath of fresh air in the musty halls of the publishing world. It is true that I had not thought about how fully our Journal helps the desperate layperson. Of course I reject your idea of NAPs (negative-acceptance rate publications) out-of-hand. (I do, however, fully embrace naps! Especially since my son has decided 5:30am is a great time to wake up every day.)
Moreover, I reject your article for publication in JofUR. It is not due to the NAPs, which was a minor, remediable, point. Rather the main flaw was that you graphed the number of replicable experiments vs. acceptance rate on a logarithmic scale. Yet don't we all know only too well that log(0) is undefined!
