another contributor hooked

Well, this is no good.

I read the RASCals listserv digest message. The second item was disheartening.

Subject: American Journal of Astronomy and Astrophics (Dave Chapman)

Hi all,

I received an invitation to submit to the publication in the title, based on something I wrote for JRASC.  To me it smells funny.  What do people think?

This suggests the warning message about predatory publishing did not reach all the contributors! Why?
