    I am sure most people here don’t agree with monetary payments for referees, preferring some kind of in-kind system (you can’t publish a lot unless you referee a lot), other positive effects on reputation, or even leaving things as they are now (the last of which I don’t think is sustainable). One idea is to tell rapacious commercial publishers that you will referee, but only for a fee. This is a way of pressuring them without an outright boycott. Of course, if they are allowed to pass on the higher cost of refereeing to subscribers, this won’t work.
