The world of publishers has become highly sensitized … I posted a comment, while shopping, on a commercial (they want money) website and received this response:
“Your IP and specific location is easily traceable and your identity is known. Do not contact me in any way shape or form. I will consider any further contact from you to be harassment. Laura Campbell Publisher
Lone Pine, Calif”
My comment that invoked her response:
half empty or half full —… looking glass is about the passing not the progressing of art…
Posted in their “contact us” prompt: We’re all ears! What’s on your mind?
noun: harassment; aggressive pressure or intimidation.
