I wish you were more responsive to my inquiries.  i want to put my art into the correct folder, but everything is left to expire time after time, and when you decline, I've asked why, but never receive any clarification.

Since I don't know why it was declined, I guess I'll simply have to keep resubmitting until I get it right...

He, she or it does not like your works and mine, unsubscribe like I'll do right now.
