Hi Poster Boy - sorry taking so long to reply; had problems logging in, which the mods kindly helped me with.

If I understand you correctly, you’re equating a loose aggregation of independent blogs with a peer-reviewed journal. If so, you’re missing the point. Skeptic Ink has no editorial oversight; each article stands or falls on its own merits. [For the record, I’m not always in agreement with other bloggers on the network, nor am I required to be.]

Martin, however, goes on and on about his papers being peer-reviewed, as if that were an automatic guarantee of their quality and validity, elevating him out of the reach of mere bloggers’ critiques. The fact that a paper as outstandingly, hilariously atrocious as Michael Jaye’s contribution passed peer review at MAA casts doubt on that journal’s ability to evaluate fringe claims – claims like Martin’s.
