Bigfoot caught on video!

The Sasquatch Genome Project apparently has pretty definitive proof of the existence of Sasquatch.

They got a few on video. (Apparently this time in Texas! Those bigfeet really do get around.)

The folks at the Sasquatch Genome Project have had some trouble getting their research published in standard peer-reviewed science journals, so they took the unusual step of essentially buying their own journal, now called the DeNovo Journal of Science. Dr. Ketchum of the SGP explains:

Rather than spend another five years just trying to find a journal to publish and hoping that decent, open-minded reviewers would be chosen, we acquired the rights to this journal and renamed it so we would not lose the passing peer reviews that are expected by the public and the scientific community.

This leaves us with an important question: Should we consider articles published in this journal to have passed scientific peer review of the sort “expected by the public and the scientific community”? (The editor of Doubtful News thinks we shouldn’t.)

What are epistemic and/or sociological functions of peer review? (Yes, that is a hint for a possible paper topic.)
