Elsevier-bashing has become a sport among researchers. The company is singled out, among publishers of research journals, perhaps because it is the largest. We might as well use Elsevier as a representative of the publishers, and hard-working people at Elsevier should not be offended.
A common point of contention is that Elsevier makes too much money. This is odd, given that many other companies make far more money, and that money symbolizes success in many cultures. So making money, by itself, should not be the reason that upsets researchers.
