Which is fine, no judgments here, but part of her "solution" includes using an auto-reply to advise people that she doesn't care to read or respond to all e-mails, even e-mails that may warrant a reply, and to please try something else if you really care to reach her. Works great for friends and family, but I wonder how that'd go over (even if she did reply eventually) to a perspective publisher or editor. Kind of like saying "I don't really need work, please contact someone else."

This is kind of a threadjack. Maybe we should discuss in SLC?
