To my surprise, I got a brief email from them today, saying "if you
8
want to put your paper on the internet then why do you want to publish
9
your paper in a journal" ! I wrote back with the obvious reply "The
10
internet is not refereed; it looks much better if I publish my papers in
11
journals, but it's much more convenient for a 'mathematician on the
12
street' if I publish my paper on my web page too; to be honest, if you
13
insist on taking away my rights to publish the paper on my web page then
14
I will strongly consider publishing elsewhere". They wrote back to me
15
saying essentially "I think it is sad that you are not seeing things from
16
the publishers point of view. Consider what you are doing and get back to
17
us".
