Merck Makes Phony Peer-Review Journal. That's not the bad part. The bad part, although neither illegal nor unexpected, is that Elsevier published it.

Peer reviewing is an excellent idea. I'm not even opposed to for-profit peer reviewing (there's an internet business model for you if you were looking for one). But oligopolic for-profit peer reviewing is just stupid, and it's high time we just dropped it for good.
