Peer Review Plus

When I was a kid, there were rules in place in Vienna that if a new hairdresser wanted to open a salon, he had to get a written opinion from other hairdressers on the area there is a need for a new hairdresser. Of course, that never happened as those existing hairdressers did not want the competition. The only way to get in was by buying out an old hairdresser at exorbitant prices. We had many such non-sensical rules. Modern peer review is similar. If the others don’t like what you say you are simply out. It’s a trainwreck and should be scraped.
