Amen to that. Although it is still better than nothing: it keeps out 
people who can't follow written instructions, which removes about half 
of the crazy population.

In this particular case it was a pretty crappy journal, while Sokal 
caught a high status one. But I think tring this kind of thing is a 
public service for unmasking the sloppiest ones.
