So, I tend to let most comments through, even the negative ones, because I like hearing from all points of view. If you surf back through the comments on this blog, you will find comments that talk about some mistakes people have found in my books, or how I was wrong about this, or didn’t know much about that, etc. Expand that surfing to include my email and you will find many, many more. I am all right with that. It’s part of being a writer.
Typically, when a reader sends me an email to let me know they found a mistake in one of my books, my reply is to thank them, then go fix the error. Many of you can attest to this, because you are the ones who notified me of the mistakes.
However, if you contact me, and your venom-filled diatribe includes phrases similar to “hire me as your editor, or at least find an editor who is not a complete r-tard,” odds are pretty good I’m not going to run your comment. It’s one thing to pick apart my books, I’m used to that, but it’s quite another to insult an entire group of people in order to do so.
Also, sending a second comment to complain about how I didn’t publish your first comment fast enough to suit you (less than 24 hours later, in this case) is not going to make me want to discuss anything with you on any level.
