Can I raise a different thread?

One of the very first articles on the Chemweb forum was one
which had previously been rejected by two referees
after having been submitted to a "conventional" forum. The
authors clearly felt frustrated that their science had not
reached a wider audience through this route, and decided that the
"pre" print (noprint?) forum might achieve this

Presumably the H/O Strategy could lead to a more or less
permanent presence somewhere for such articles.

Without implying anything about the specific article noted above,
I wonder whether there is a risk that with precedents established,
such chemistry preprint servers might simply become a refuge
for "unpublishable science".
