The point I was making is being missed: regardless of how much you and I
might extoll and praise electronic publishing (speedier, less cost, fast
distribution, etc.) as a way around the problem of long publishing times in
journals, there is another side of the hiring/promotion game; namely, those
making the decisions can simply discount however much you have published
merely by deeming it as being published in non-prestigious and/or
non-refereed journals.
