A Note for Those Thinking of Querying Us

Hello potential contributors,

A few times we have tried to get back to someone who has emailed us with a request that we look at something they wrote. But when we try to email them back, we get a spam blocking message to the effect the we have to click or email somewhere else, because they have their privacy filters or whatnot set so they only get emails from people they pre-approve or have on a list or whatever.

People, that's rude. If you want to sell your writing and get people to respond to you, after you contacted them, you need to disable this or not do it, because once an editor gets this message that's the end of it. 

If you are reading this and you are not sure if you've done this, or someone else did it, or it's a default setting or something, you might want to check.
