modern but no TeX nor pdf

I happened to come across the webpage of the Journal of Modern Applied Statistical Methods (the very first time I had encountered this journal). And saw the following announcement:

Authors interested in submitting a manuscript to JMASM should follow these guidelines. Note: Submissions in Tex and .pdf are NOT acceptable.

Meaning that only MS Word manuscripts are acceptable… Sounds to me to be a bit contradictory with the “Modern” in the title, no?, unless the Modern stands for fonts! (The code used as a graphical theme for the journal heading seems to be Fortran, which also has difficulties to fit this Modern qualification.)
