Before you submit anything to a highly respectable site you should ensure that what you submit is respectable, too. A site can be highly respectable only if it is strict on submissions that are far from being highly respectable.

By the way, you cannot demand anything on a site that you don't own.

I assume you are referring to this paper.

Sorry, the paper was meant to be closed, not hidden.

I've reshown it now, but I completely endorse the closure, which is based on the submission decline policy. Papers dealing with non-mainstream physics that are neither experimentally or mathematically justified are declined from review. Only a very small subset of submissions received by PhysicsOverflow come under this category.
