Further Evidence of Archive Blacklisting
(Information supplied by Carlos Castro)
Paul Slater (KITP, Santa Barbara ) successfully
posted a paper in the math category of arxiv.org which discusses
a model co developed by Carlos Castro. The paper entitled
"A Numerical Examination of the Castro-Mahecha Supersymmetric
Model of the Riemann Zeros " (posted at: http://www.arxiv.org/abs/math.NT/0511188)
discusses a paper by Carlos Castro and Jorge Mahecha on the Riemann
Hypothesis which was published in 2004 in the International
Journal of Geometrical Methods of Modern Physics. Yet,
when Mahecha and Castro tried to post their original work in
the Math and hep-th sections of the arXiv.org, the archive blocked
their paper from being posted.
The ICTP fiasco. The new science e-archives launched by the Int Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy also engages in blacklisting. Carlos Castro attempted to post to this archive three papers (all accepted in refereed journals), but his attempts failed. He learned that others who are blacklisted by Cornell had ALL had their papers removed from the ICTP archive a posteriori. Dr. Florentin Smarandache whose papers were removed can no longer even log in to the Trieste site. The Name of the ICTP Trieste site is: "Open Archives Alternative " Another cruel joke!!!
This is what Carlos has called the "translational invariance property of the blacklisting of scientists," which may turn out to be valid worldwide.
In October 2004, CERN shut down their website service to arxiv.org blacklistees. They did this most likely under pressure from the "Americans".
