I couldn't resist sharing:
The boss is in Acapulco till February or March, and he left me in charge till his return.
I am not going to remove the listing.
The listing does not contain any copyrighted information--and you know it, unless you know nothing about copyrights. The listing contains only publicly available information or fair-use snippets.
You called at 2:05 A.M.. At about the same time, you sent the same email message from the contact page many times. Obviously, you have your panties in a knot. You can't tell me that you do ordinary business at 2:05 A.M.. I think you were having a snit fit. Put away your dog-eared copy of PORTNOY'S COMPLAINT, get off the toilet, and calm down.
Generally, literary agents are pea-brained, teeny-weeny, anally retentive, third-grade microcephalic morons who can't write or think worth a cat's turd. They use the equivalents of Cliffs Notes to judge the writings and intellects of others--because their own minds can't encompass anything larger than a short note. They think they are hot shit on golden platters, though they are cold turds on paper plates. I am sure that none of this applies to you--I am mentioning these literary-agent traits only to clarify why I am not disposed to react "kindly" to an agent's rudeness.
Perhaps later, when I have forgotten your rudeness, I will emend the listing to say that you do not accept queries. In the meantime, you should quit pestering me about this tempest in a teapot that is stirring and intoxicating you.
For Christ's sake--or, more likely, Yahweh's--don't worry about the appearance of publicly available information on the Internet.

To Whom It May Concern:
I have tried to reach you by email and phone, but your email form appears not to work correctly and your phone appeared to answer but there was no machine. I will attempt to fax this letter, as well as email it to the address on your registration page, and then, if necessary, mail it US Mail.
I am writing to request that you remove all information regarding myself and my firm from your website, 1000literaryagents.com. The information you have is out-of-date and not complete. As I am unable to police every posting on every website whenever my information changes or my areas of interest change, I request that you limit any reference to me or my firm to a single link to my website at www.zackcompany.com.
As it states on our home page: “A note for those building sites for authors: Please do not infringe on the copyright of our site. Please do not copy or reproduce any information from our site on your site. You may link to my site, but that is all. Do not put our mailing address or any other contact information on your site. Thank you.”
I would appreciate your immediate cooperation with this request.
Thank you and happy holidays.
