We sometimes get responses like that. It makes my head spin, honestly. Way to shoot yourself in the foot, writer!

His reaction was childish, but the line "As it states clearly above the submission form" set the wrong tone. It reads too sarcastic. It would have irked me a bit, too.

The question is, was that note saying they were closed really down at the bottom?

That was my question too. Was the note really where they say it was or did they change it afterward so that they could make some poor schmuck look like an idiot?

The oldest cache I could find was for April 8th, and the note was above the submission form. According to the post, the writer submitted after the 8th...

They had posts at the end of March stating that they were not going to accept submissions for April. It was on Twitter and on the blog. They had to do some changes last minute.

Is he the guy that talked about your child molesting lips, or whatever?

I agree that the "As it states clearly" line does sound a little harsh. But also, we as writers have to understand that editors are people, as well. We have to give leeway as well as expect it.

Close. Here are some choice replies from him. This first one is his reply to our rejection:

Next time, if there is one, PLEASE, just send me an impersonal NO. I got no fucking time to be reading all this useless fucking crap.

Thanks,
DCG
At least he thanked us. Haha. I made the mistake of replying, though, which set him off. He just kept sending reply after reply. It was awesome.

Now that I have a free moment:

FUCK YOU, YOU IGNORANT SON-OF-A-BITCH!

I made it clear that my time is too valuable to waste with your idioter crap and you send me an email!!!???

Are you fucking insane!!!

If I ever hear from you again, you freaking asshole, I will Wikepidia your pediphilic feletio lips all over the fucking universe!

DG
That's the best one. So awesome! lol

I would've been tempted to reply again, pointing out the misspellings in his email... Very Happy
