Least and most corrupt journals

I've refereed for Ethics and had a slightly odd experience. The paper I read I thought was very bad. I said as much in the initial report and gave some feedback that I had hoped would help. The paper received an R&R and I was asked to review again. I thought it was rare for papers in a journal of that quality to do that. (If my initial report that said the paper was hopeless was not taken seriously, why ask for another?)

I know pretty nearly nothing about the first four on your list, but there's nothing corrupt at Ethics. I have inside knowledge.

Really? How about that weird system where you just can't get published if a couple of associate editors don't support you, regardless of what referees say?

There's no David M among the associate editors. And just looking at the list, it's not very plausible that 'protegees' have been boosted by any of them.

It's possible I'm overlooking something, but I'm starting to suspect sour grapes.

David M was an associate editor for quite a few years. Of course if you weren't a gradflake you'd know that.

"How about that weird system where you just can't get published if a couple of associate editors don't support you, regardless of what referees say?"

A couple of AEs failing to support doesn't finish a paper that gets to that stage. It's a vote, not a veto. How is that supposed to be corrupt?

I'm 'Leon', by the way, but using Tor.
