Thanks to all who've commented here, and to the many email subscribers who've responded as well. It's much appreciated!
Yes, we should be thanking you for all the hard work the crew does to protect us all.
Hey, I linked to you last week, it's obviously all down to me :-p
Anyway, congratulations on providing a great, and much needed information source.
I'm sure you saved a lot of people from being taken advantage of.
Thank YOU. Your posts are fantastic. Keep doing what you're doing – we're here because you do such a great job.
I echo those above me that it's we who owe you our thanks.
Hey no, we're the ones who should thank you! I always read your posts with the greatest interest, you are our protectors!
I'm glad to promote your posts. You folks do an excellent job 🙂
I'm only too happy to help get the word out. I've learned a lot here! Thank you!
I gave you a huge shout-out yesterday on an equine writer's facebook page and found it hard to believe there were some people there who'd never heard of Writer Beware … so I'm really glad I shouted, loud and clear. Hopefully, they will learn to look here before the make any disastrous leaps into the wrong end of publishing.
Damn it! S.M. took my comment! ^_^ Seriously, though, thank you A.C., Victoria and Richard. You are the scam busters.
No, no! Thank YOU!
