Journal Shaming: Arabian Journal of Chemistry 

My now stock response to Elsevier requests to referee papers in organic chemistry (I guess?)

I know nothing about this topic. You should be ashamed to send out
referee requests with so little vetting.

So far no response. There was a clue in the latest one though, it says "Dear David H Bremner". H is not my middle initial.
There is a DH Bremner who publishes in Chemical Engineering, but works somewhere in the UK.

Journal Shaming: Arabian Journal of Chemistry 

"In response to your comment below I think the Elsevier Publisher should be ashamed to put your name in the wrong category of
science classification."

M'kay. If they don't see why blindly copying referee suggestions from a database does not count as being an editor, I'm not going to engage with this further.
