A reader pointed out a travesty of a paper by Leonard J. Malinowski. Golden mean energy equals highest atomic electron orbital energy, Leonard J. Malinowski, Chaos, Solitons and Fractals Vol. 42 (2009) pp. 3130–3131. It was accepted for publication by editor Gerardo Iovane, whose picture is shown.

Ray Munroe gives us some background:
Len Malinowski is my friend. He is a chemist in Pennsylvania whom I have also never met. CS&F originally rejected his submission, but they suggested that he should correspond with "the great American physicist, Dr. Ray Munroe" (funny huh - no one else addresses me that way - I think too many think I'm a maverick or a goof). I liked Len's fundamental idea (which is based on Scale Invariance and Scale Relativity) but didn't like the overall presentation - it was almost information overload. I gave my recommendations for improvements to both Len and CS&F, and they decided to publish his ideas in a raw, unedited, form. I can honestly say that some peer review did take place.
Len has a website at www.scalativity.com if you want more detail on his ideas. The downfall of El Naschie as CS&F Editor affected the publication of Len's ideas - many papers had been accepted by CS&F but will probably never make publication.
By the way, I'm working on a paper that should reinforce these ideas of Scale Invariance. Is it crackpottery just because someone doesn't understand it?
The Scalativity site does not inspire confidence. Great sound effects though. Try mousing over the menu items on the top of the page.
Brotherhood member Gerardo Iovane himself writes more lengthy tripe:
The set of prime numbers: Multiscale analysis and numeric accelerators

Thanks to The Golden Mean in Quantum Mechanics and High Energy Physics for the Iovane paper. This embarrassment was accepted for publication in CSF by the infamous Ji-Huan He.
Ji-Huan He of course writes nonsense papers about the fractal dimension of wool, and about the fatalness of viruses, based upon El Naschie's E-infinity theory.
