Write it up and send it to the ICGA.  Many of us review papers for them.  They
don't
just toss them in the can, they send them to 2-3-4 people to review, and then
the author
gets the feedback from the reviewers along with a recommendation "to publish" or
"to publish after modifications"...

That would be very short-sighted.  I can think of _many_ articles written by
people
that fit the above, and thankfully they were not rejected...

It is a "peer review process"...
