This is my last word on the subject.
On February 2, 2008 Cincgreen posted a review of the first part of my story EarthFall.
In the review he took portions of the story and edited them(rewrote) before publishing the review to his site.
My complaint with this was first having to discover the review by a 3rd party source and then discovering the rewritten portions. I posted a response to my blog, his blog, and the PPMB. In this response I requested he remove the rewritten sections from the review. He has acknowledged my request and apparently denied it.
For me this matter was dead and I haven’t mentioned it again in my blog but I have responded to various prompts on the PPMB tread I started.
Now it seems he has put up another message on another blog. This one is addressed to me but he failed to inform me of its existence. (Again I had to find out from a 3rd party.) I do think it’s time to clear up a few things.
Cincgreen did post rewritten portions of my story on his blog. I never made the claim he was trying to take credit for the story and when someone got that impression I corrected that at once. I have no objection to any review but this goes past the line of reviewing to editing in my opinion. I have made no demands for anything. I made a request, without threat or insult. Now I feel insulted.
The second blog post lets me know all I need to know about this person.
Let me offer a review of Cincgreen. By taking liberties with my work you weaken your review in my eyes because anything that distracts from a more important message is a bad thing. Next writing a blog addressed to me and not telling me is rude and to be blunt I have no more time to waste on you. Congratulations you have defeated your own message.
Finally I am emailing this to Cincgreen so there can be no doubt. My request to remove the edited sections from the review stands but feel free to review any work I’ve ever done.
