Hi James. I can absolutely understand where you're coming from and I respect your opinion about this. Clearly your piece is directed toward a specific person and I can't help but wonder if you're the writer that another story I just read was about. The story was along the same lines, i.e., FU to the writer who got hysterical because I edited their piece. Only because the stories were published one right after the other does it make me think y'all are talking to each other.
If so, I think both stories are unprofessional, quite frankly. I don't see any value to the reader from each of your examples of vitriolic back and forth.
If not, then I still wonder at the professionalism of publishing your inner dressing down of this editor.
I can understand the anger but as a reader, it feels tantrum-line.
