I agree with your illuminating post completely. Actually, lately I'm shying away from all pubs that seem to publish almost everything submitted to them, including ones that I still like to occasionally read from.

I published one story for the pub in question and then decided not to publish any more with them. I think the more we publish in places like this, the more we diminish ourselves and even this platform as a whole.

Let's hope more writers wake up to these shenanigans.

Grew up with the laughter of Jim Henson echoing down the hall and the likes of Stan Lee darkening my door. Fiction is in my bones. Awkward humor is my maladie.
