What is the point in you?

As I friend of mine once said, this is what happens when national pride replaces personal pride:

Why the hell didn't the arXiv administrators block that paper? It looks like it was typeset by an arse (I mean an actual arse), the abstract is fundamentally awful, and the paper itself is contentless.

Oh, no, they were right to let it appear. It's not for them to decide what is good science and what is irrelevant dribble. I'm just grumpy because the wankers reclassified my paper without telling me. Wow. That was months ago. Turns out I'm still bitter!
