I know that it's not much in the grand scheme of things, and it's definitely a first world problem: but it was honestly one of the biggest disappointments I've had in a very long time. I guess it was especially gutting since it was the first time I was going to have anything published. I guess it must have happened for a reason, though. Suit yourself, but I could never feel good about submitting to them again after what happened.
