</div>Paul, I think that once your name and email address gets captured by 
spiders crawling around the internet looking for the names of aspiring 
academic authors, you will find that you get swamped every day with 
offers to publish your articles and attend "World Congresses" on various 
hot topics as well. I have no real iea if anyone reads these journals in 
addition to the great excess of legitimate, peer-reviewed journals that 
already exist, but I suspect very few. As most universities nowadays 
require publication as a condition for having an academic job, I suspect 
the authors don't care. But with millions of aspiring authors and the 
option of vey cheap short run printing today, its an opportunity for 
someone to earn a living. But perhaps I am wrong.
