We recently experienced many problems during comment posting in the ‘comment section’ of the scholarlyoa blog (http://scholarlyoa.com). Many persons complained that their comments are not published if it is not going in favour of the that blog owner’s view. I have also faced similar problem. We feel that it is against the concept of blog and ‘free flow of thoughts and discussion’. We should only moderate a comment, if it is having offensive language, offensive and provocative thoughts, etc. In this blog we welcome all the related discussions of OA. We promise ‘free flow of discussion’.
About the blog owner: I am Akbar Khan, a retired school teacher from India. I am interested in Open Access movement. I can be reached here: firstname.lastname@example.org
My views: I think the present hate campaign adopted by J. Beall against the so called questionable publishers ( or so called predatory open access publishers) is not going to solve the problem. I have shared my most of views in the blog of Richard Poynder (Link: http://poynder.blogspot.in/2013/01/the-oa-interviews-ashry-aly-of-ashdin.html).
I am again re-posting it here from here (http://poynder.blogspot.in/2013/01/the-oa-interviews-ashry-aly-of-ashdin.html):
