Bruce, I guess the analogy fails on the fact that you're not looking for
a key, but for people, and I thought "better light" will attract people
to find you instead of you to need to search...
I believe the problem is not that there isn't enough information, but
not enough people able to do the work. Seeking solutions in areas that
aren't helping was the illustration.
There are multiple problems.
Of course no amount of technology will provide us with a bigger pool of
qualified reviewers. That doesn't mean our present management methods
are good - you seem to be just about the only person left who thinks
they are. Moving from using a quill to using a fountain pen or even a
ballpoint doesn't mean we have more writers or better writers. But it
does make writing easier and is therefore a good thing to do.
