After further consideration, I’ve decided to remove my “open letter” regarding the aforementioned blog. Even though the author remains completely anonymous to me, and I honestly thought I was vigorously protecting their anonymity, I can see how my letter may have discouraged them or anyone else from communicating privately with me. I also made some assumptions about the author’s intentions regarding the blog being private. I had no business doing that, and want to apologize on that count as well.
I want to reassure everyone that I will not make this mistake this again. What you email to me remains between you and me unless you give me permission to write about it on these pages.
