To spin this ongoing saga in a more constructive direction, I'd suggest that people in need of papers/chapters should do a quick search online and find the author to them contact in person. I've taken to doing this recently and I've never once had a negative response. In fact, usually the author is both a) flattered that you've tracked them down and are interested in their research and b) also quite interested in what you're doing.
It's a little more laboursome but more emotionally sustainable in the long-run for all involved, and you might even end up with some interesting new possibilities for collaboration.
So rather than sniping from our ipads, let's prefigure some more mindful approaches to participation and information sharing, and focus on finding more productive alternatives please!

I haven't joined in on requests for papers before because I totally understand the problem of lack of access, but this is the second time this week we've had a request of this sort. My answer is "Do your own research!"
