Commentary by Stephen Downes

So Jason Baird Jackson told people supporting open access to boycott commercial publishers, Stevan Harnad criticized him, saying he is "giving the wrong advice on Open Access, recommending a strategy that has not only been tried and has failed and been superseded already, but a strategy that, with some reflection, could have been seen to be wrong-headed without even having to be tried," to which I wrote a response saying that the non-commercial strategy is not a failure, to which Daniel Lemire wrote a rejoinder calling us all silly.
