Ignatovich gave a link to a PDF documenting a submission of his to Phys. Rev. B and subsequent communication with the journal. I have hosted it on Scribd for your convenience.

I am delighted to find such a forum.
I would like also to know, what are the reasons behind the words
“I do not agree with (well actually I do think the original EPR paper is “wrong”, but not for the reasons the author gives!)”
I should confess that the paper discussed here is really a little bit poor. I promise to submit in ArXiv another paper with more substantial critics of all this nonphysics of Bell’s inequalities measurements. I will submit only in the ArXiv, because no journal will accept it. The plot of “Fundamental Physicists” is strong and censorship is insuperable.
I do not agree that anonymous referees are not needed.
But it must be a practice: if an author publishes his article somwhere he should have a right to include in his paper a section on submission and rejection history with all the referee reports he likes. It must be published by journals. It will increase their responsibilities in choice of referees and in choice of reports they send to authors. Till now no publisher except the Journal “Concepts of Physics” (former editor in chief Edward Kapuscik) accepted such a section.
I would like also to tell some words about appellation [sic. appeal] system in APS [American Physical Society]. It is not an appellation system, but a protection system for ignorance and incompetence. I could publish nowhere my letter to APS president. For instance the APS News even do not reply to my letters. If somebody wants to see my struggle with Phys.Rev.B on linear algebra, he can look at http://fnp.kek.jp/workshop/20100408/proceedings/26-vignatovich.pdf. I promis it is a funny reading.
I am lucky to find accidentally this Forum! Best regards to everybody here.
