Forsdyke replies: Yes it is different, because journals are not edited books
and we are discussing journals. But considering books, if I were asked to edit
a book I would approach potential contributors based solely on their expertise
not on whether they happened to be members of a certain club, access to which
is rumoured to be rather politicised.
