        The ArXiv moderators have publicly disclosed the identity of G. Forst in September 2013 by writing: "This submission has been removed because 'G.Forst' is a pseudonym of Ignazio Ciufolini, who repeatedly submits inappropriate articles under pseudonyms. This is in explicit violation of arXiv policies. Roughly similar content to this article, contrasting the relative merits of the LAGEOS and GP-B measurements of the frame-dragging effect, can be found in pp. 43--45 of: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v449/n7158/pdf/nature06071.pdf". I noticed it in December 2013, and after a few days I started to circulate it on the Internet, the ArXiv moderators suddenly removed it without justification. In a reply to an inquiry of mine, they motivated their decision with alleged "changes in their policies", not with a mistake in identifying G. Forst with I. Ciufolini. Indeed, in January 2014, they fully reinstated their comment publicly exposing I. Ciufolini. In Februaty 2014, they again removed it.
