I'm under the impression that the ex-SJPAM's peer review method involved
feeding a copy to the rats out back and publishing if it didn't kill them.

No, no I don't recall that. Concerned that a journal might publish a
paper with mistakes in it, yes.

No, I don't believe any group got together. What *was* done was that the
journal was told that there was an error in a paper they had published.

Any competent responsible mathematician should contact any journal if he
or she sees an error in a published piece.

: The chief editor apparently believed them, and yanked my paper

They were right.

Best,
Justin
