Not sure which is worst

1. That someone wrote or otherwise acquired a manuscript about the supposed health benefits of Potato Purple Drank, and went through an article-broker or papermill who set up spoof reviewers to get it published;

2. That the cockwombles at Bentham Open accepted it, so that they could later make a holy show of unpublishing it again and proclaiming their adherence to the high ideals of research probity (they were shocked, shocked! to find that gambling is going on here);

3. That Potato Purple Drank is a thing.

Just saying, when the Bentham Open editators decided to accept an Article Processing Charge from the nominal authors of "The Research on the Impact of Green Beans Sports Drinks on Relieving Fatigue in Sports Training", and "The Research on the Impact of Maca Polypeptide on Sport Fatigue", they knew all along that both papers came off a production line.

Well-meaning attempts of authors to involve themselves only impedes production of the papers.
