It is simpler than that. If I browse to the Springer Verlag
 pages on "Social Choice and Welfare", I can read the pdf files if
 I use a suitable ".edu" public proxy.

I currently have what happens to be, the largest Internet page of
 common port public proxies. That's at:

I tried two ".edu" proxies on reading your message: the first proxy
 was dead and the 2nd,


 allowed me to read a Springer Verlag publication that had previously
 been blocked by a prompt for a password and a username. (I entered
 "* smathersl1.uflib.ufl.edu:3128 . ." into a junkbuster.com proxy
 config text file).

[Note: if Springer Verlag ran a proxy, then maybe some of the
 electrical engineering students in an Iranian University that once
 wrote saying they were stuck behind an IP number address translating
 NAT, might be able to escape their near total censoring, and browse
 the Internet, if they used a Springer Verlag proxy, or that of another
 journal magazine.]

Are people writing to this list advocating some "Approval Vote" method?.
Isn't it one of the very worst methods around?.
