Seems like RSOS has started a retraction process for the paper.

"An investigation into these aspects is under way, and the journal is therefore issuing an expression of concern and will notify readers as to the results of our investigation as soon as possible."

I do not see any mention by RSOS of "retraction" or "withdrawal." Some extremely stupid comments have been posted about my paper by a few extremist Bell-believers (because they are petrified of my repudiation of Bell's so-called theorem), and therefore the journal is naturally obliged to investigate the matter following the standard COPE protocol.

Incidentally, so far my paper has been downloaded over fourteen thousand times from the journal's website. Thus, it is no wonder that some Bell-believers are petrified of my paper.

Sure. But we all know how these "investigations" end. I just hope you get your money back.

I did not have to pay any publication fee to RSOS, so there is no question of getting anything back from them. And Bell's dead theorem will not be resurrected even if my paper is retracted. More than fourteen thousand people have already read my paper, so the cat is out of the bag. Only extremely stupid may continue to believe in Bell's theorem after having read my paper.

Whatever. But you should stop your attempts at publishing, because having a paper published and then retracted is much, much worse for your reputation than not having attempted to publish. And you already had one retracted.

But I guess you don't care about your reputation anymore.

Thanks for your concern, but my reputation is of no significance. What is important is that junk like "Bell's theorem" must be exposed at whatever cost, together with the stupidity of the intellectual lightweights who continue to believe in it. For this reason, I have submitted this paper to a very prominent journal with a policy of not retracting a paper once it is published.

I will, of course, announce the details on this forum and elsewhere as soon as the above paper is published. From now on I will be publishing my papers in journals which cannot be bullied.

Having your paper published, retracted, and then re-published again in a journal of even higher prestige, would on the other hand give one a sublimely high reputation. Probably it has already happened a few times. "The Times They Are a-Changin".

The paper was retracted after some bogus complaint of "errors" in it was sent to the editors of Annals of Physics. But the journal failed to provide me any evidence of error, even privately, and even after repeated requests from me. I have documented the full context of the shoddy behavior of the journal in this regard in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=283&p=8139#p6853

I have also summarized my response to various criticisms of my paper that could have been sent to the journal in this paper: https://www.academia.edu/38423874/Refut ... ls_Theorem

Considering the gross injustice done to the paper and the setback that has inflicted to the foundations of physics, it is only fair that the paper is now being reconsidered for publication.

Thanks Jim!

All thanks to the enormous efforts and sublime patience of Jay Yablon, and thanks to the graciousness of Joy and Fred!
