I will no longer submit articles to PLOS One, nor will I review any articles when asked to. This latest debacle/outrage is not the only reason, it's another in a long line of things that have eroded my confidence. It makes me embarrassed to list PLOS papers in my CV. I feel particularly sorry for young researchers who have a small number of papers previously published here. Not even a retraction will make me change my mind.
Bye bye PLOs.
