Exposed: “Randykitty” is a Jeffrey Beal

I came by Jeffrey Beall’s blog while searching for journals. Jeffrey Beall himself is not qualified as a judge on open access journals.
Most importantly, I have noticed that Jeffrey also uses Wikipedia to promote his ‘agenda.’ He goes by the username “Randykitty”.(I have many reasons to believe why Randykitty is Jeffrey Beall. The user mainly edits open access journals, monitors his own entry, and cites Beall’s blog,).  It gives false impression to many that he is the ‘holy’ judge of open access journals.
I think many should know about this. Beall is getting attention much more than he should have.

Wikipedia is being manipulated to promote Beall and his bogus blog. People need to know
