*AAAS is vying for the crown of Lord Vader or Chief Evildoer in its
approach to suppressing open dissemination of scientific knowledge, even
when that knowledge is paid for by tax payer money in the first place.*
They claim to support open access. They redefine it to be a pay for
publishing charge (APC)  of $3,000 USD and that restricts the subsequent
use of the information in the article preventing commercial reuses such as
publication on some educational blogs, incorporation into educational
material, as well the use of this information by small to medium
enterprises. If you really meant open access, the way the rest of world
defines it, you’ll have to pay a surcharge of an additional $1,000.  But it
gets worse.
