As a one-time contributor of chaff, I attest that there is much chaff in 
the OEIS. I have heard the argument that the OEIS is a database, and can 
therefore afford to collect some chaff, however, I hasten to add that 
the OEIS is also an academic work referenced in a great deal of 
mathematical research, and in that regard should enforce some minimal 
agreeable standard of accuracy and relevance.

Such standards can only be enforced by a reasonably objective formal 
editorial review process. In the absence of such a process, the OEIS 
will continue to collect chaff.
