The story continues. I just received this reply from the writer:

Sounds right to me, Rob.
Therefore, in the future, I will continue to rely upon your system of publishing rules, judgments, etc.,
It seems to be working just fine.
I submit, then you either accept or reject.

Sounds like a winner to me.
Again, it's a mistake for folks to take this stuff personally - I don't.

Keep up the good work - even though I personally don't approve of your policy, it is after all, your policy, not mine.
A note to the editor who rejected my piece:
I write what I want because it contains the message I want to say. Simple.
If I wanted to write a love note to Hillary, I would have whispered sweet nothings to her. I didn't.
If I wanted to operate within the bounds of what I perceive to be OpedNews' policy - I would have - but I didn't.
I sought to be fairly offensive to the Clinton's and their supporters: Mission accomplished.
Probative value? Of course the article possesses informational value.
That's the beautiful thing about America, I have the right to submit and you have the right to reject.
I copied the editor with the comment, "another reason to like (this writer,) in spite of (this writer's) rough edges."

A nice, satisfying wrap to an email exchange that could have gone in a very different direction.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
