Prof. Nikos Mastorakis: Quality of Conferences and Quality of Fake Blogs and Bogus Scientific Fora


Dear WSEAS-ers,
From time to time, some other conference organizers, i.e. some "colleagues" that run their own conferences use to open "fake blogs" (scam, fraud) on the web and "protest" because they receive an email from WSEAS. (By the way, see below just one of the Spams that I received from TAYLOR and FRANCIS).
I wonder why the owners of these bogus blogs (scam, fraud blogs) don't protest for their own conference organizers or why they do not say the truth that just because they run their own conferences they want to blame and harm not only WSEAS but also IEEE, ACM, SIAM, Springer, Hindawi, IADIS, IASTED, IARIA etc...

These junk-bloggers try to defame WSEAS and many other serious societies and organization like IEEE, Springer Verlag, SIAM, Elsevier, Springer calling them as fraud, scam, bogus, junk, garbage and the like.

For instance we received some days ago the following email many times (obviously SPAM) from TAYLOR and FRANCIS.

Will the bogus blogs (scam blogs - fraud blogs) of these scam folks write that TAYLOR and FRANCIS send them spam as well?
In the same category with these junk blogs, there are some internet trolls and some adventurers that if they receive (eventually) some "call-for-papers" from some organizers they stuff the web, they upload new posts (even new blogs) in their scam blogs with so many protests about ostensible "fake" conferences. Some times, they do not hesitate to compose spurious and falsified letters of acceptances (obviously garbages) supposed that they were sent to them by IEEE, SIAM, IET, IASTED, IARIA or even WSEAS.

When these academic criminals, these crooks, these internet trolls, receive an email from Springer Verlag / Taylor and Francis / Elsevier/ IEEE / SIAM , they start blogging, shooting for Spam, clamoring for Bogus Conferences , for Junk conferences and the like. I do not know what the others do, but the WSEAS Conferences have now in all the Conference Proceedings (Hard Copy and CDs) the name of the Reviewers and we intend to publish in the near future the names of the Reviewers per each paper as well as the number of the Rejected papers that they reject. The email addresses of the Reviewers will be on the Proceedings and every well wisher can check it.
In fact, the only valid, the only reputable, the only correct method for evaluating the quality and the seriousness of a conference is to see and to check the INDICES that this conference participate. Bogus Blogs, Junk Fora, Spam Emails etc... have zero reputability, zero seriousness. Only the INDEXING of some conference (and of journals of course) will reveal what is the QUALITY of it. Any information from pseudo-blogs, any disinformation of the internet jungle is absolutely unacceptable, deceptive, fraudulent and miserable. 

Additionally a garbage "IEEE blog on Computational Complexity" use to blame from time to time many conference organizers, but this garbage "IEEE blog on Computational Complexity" has never reported the two fake (SCIgen) papers (scam, fraud) that these people were accepted in their IEEE Conference on Computational Complexity (find these SCIgen papers in IEEE Conference on Computational Complexity by Google)

Best Regards
Prof. Nikos Mastorakis
