things to do to make your editors hate you

After we politely decline your article, send it to us again a few months later, having cut away half the text, and leaving out the part where we sent you a form rejection the first time.

We’ll remember. I promise. And we really, really won’t like it, because we didn’t ask you to resend (we oftentimes do this if we feel that an article is close, but not quite ready) and we think you’re trying to pull a fast one on us.

It’s the “we think you’re trying to pull a fast one on us” part that really makes us huffy. So much so that we might blacklist you. You don’t want that. Don’t do this.
