Elsevier keeps 'ghost profiles' for people who don't have Mendeley accounts. You can "claim" your ghost, and it's "yours".. but uh.. not really because it's centralised. And this is presented like a nice fun helpful thing. Ghost profiles is some facebook-level creepy surveillence profiling shit. Makes me sad :( But not surprised.
