I hope we&#8217;re not the the point of having litmus tests for OA
orthodoxy, whatever that orthodoxy might be, whether &#8220;full and
immediate deposit in repositories without delayed access&#8221; or
&#8220;full and immediate author-pays publishing&#8221; or whatever.

It&#8217;s discouraging and more than a little insulting to those who
believe in free access and have taken risks to accomplish it&#8212;Jan
being only one of many--to be labeled heretics. Sometimes it seems that
this list serve exists more to define doctrinal purity than to evangelize
in support of the cause.
