arXiv math.GM/0601059 and HAL ccsd-00016422

This paper, solving the 60-year old Congruence Lattice Problem traditionally attributed to R.P. Dilworth, was received by J. Amer. Math. Soc. on January 26, 2006. On December 5, 2006, the paper was rejected, not taking into account the positive referees' reports. The rejection letter, quite a model of academic hypocrisy, can be seen here (with name of the handling editor edited out).

See also the following Wikipedia article. The following survey article, written by George Grätzer, Two Problems That Shaped a Century of Lattice Theory, Notices Amer. Math. Soc. 54, no. 6 (2007), 696--707, partly deals with the Congruence Lattice Problem.

In relation with these matters, read the Letters to the Editors section in the abovecited issue of Notices Amer. Math. Soc., and don't miss the essay by Doron Zeilberger, Because You Snubbed Others You Were Snubbed, and Those Who Snubbed You Shall Be Snubbed.

Also, read Melvin Henriksen's most interesting essay, There are too many B.A.D. mathematicians (reprinted from The Mathematical Intelligencer, volume 15, no. 1 (1993)), more and more relevant as time goes.
