What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

I am a vociferous critic of exclusionary and restrictive paradigms in academic publishing and as such welcome WebmedCentral's innovative open access and review model for disseminating research in an efficient manner and allowing the research community at large to comment on submissions and maintain the project's quality.
