Maybe I'm biased though, because it just makes me sad to think that at an institution where people don't even care about tenure, people would still be worrying about where to submit papers. Sometimes I think that every time somebody strategizes over which journal submission will lead to the most prestige, somewhere, somehow, a kitten dies. That was never supposed to be the point.

If they didn't care about prestige they wouldn't be publishing in a journal at all. Finding the most prestigious is just the natural extension.
