    Interesting read.
    don't know if there is any way for people to show support to the creator of sci-hub?

    The incompetence of every UK medical journal in promoting harmful BPS pseudoscience certainly suggests so.

    Aaron Swartz literally died for this. As many in the ME community do, just on the other side of things. The current model is even more broken considering how the ME saboteurs seem to all have financial interests in promoting their ideology and how medical journals enable this tragedy. And considering how Richard Horton is still in his job, still doing the same failure he did previously and celebrated for it.

    Radical transparency is inevitable. Break everything, the current system is completely broken anyway, especially in medicine. Break it all, nothing of value will be lost.
