What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

Pre-publication peer review is enormously inefficient because a high percentage of papers are rejected, and hence are resubmitted to multiple journals. Pre-publication peer review also amounts to censorship, and hinders the free exchange of ideas and data. Thus, pre-publication review is anti-scientific. All authors should voluntarily seek some sort of informal pre-publication peer review on their own to improve their manuscripts, and authors should be solely responsible for the quality of their publications. Publishing platforms such as WebmedCentral are crucial for the development of science.
