  2. No; it's mainly a pre-print server.
    No, not at all. This is all mentioned in the "About the arXiv" and
    "arXiv primer" links you can access by clicking on the "Help" link in
    the top right. The closest it comes is:

    "Submissions are reviewed by expert moderators to verify that they
    are topical and refereeable scientific contributions that follow
    accepted standards of scholarly communication (as exemplified by
    conventional journal articles)."

    Note: referee**ABLE**, not referee**D**. In short: they should look
    like something a journal would send out for being refereed, and not an
    obvious crank work. No checking for actual accuracy/correctness is
    done, and some sections of the arXiv have a fair amount of crank
    papers anyway (e.g., the General Mathematics section).
    Presumably, only if it is ever vetted and verified; certainly not
    merely by being put in the arXiv.
