A Word to the Wise: Authors and Rejection Responses

Authors, please do not respond to rejections by proclaiming proudly in emails to us that it's been sold elsewhere, soon after.
We're happy for you, but it sounds rather tacky, and comes across as rather childish. Editors and publishers have all kinds of
tastes and it does happen that someone else might like your story a lot more than we did. That's the way it works.
But taking offense or affront that we didn't, and that someone else did, is tantamount to idiocy.
