From In the Inbox:
A man named David Benjamin was unhappy an agent rejected him. He wrote a bitter blog post.
I’m providing this because I want you to know that people like this exist. Agents frequently have to protect themselves from this kind of abuse. The industry is small and agents pass this kind of thing on to each other. Note that this is not his first bitter post about an agent who rejected him.

PG’s initial reaction is, of course, that this guy should self-publish his ms and see how readers feel about it.
His second reaction comes from long legal experience with hundreds of clients and would-be clients. If a prospective client is someone who has hired and fired several attorneys before coming to PG, PG’s reaction is that even his unique PG-magic is unlikely to satisfy this particular client.
In some cases, this may be unfair to the prospective client, but every time PG has broken this informal rule, he has regretted doing so. On one memorable occasion, the local police had to drag a client out of his office.
