In short: This person has deliberately deceived the editor they'd like to work with, in a way that is then immediately revealed to the editor.
What exactly do you suppose is my reaction?
((To those people (who I suspect will never see this blog), I ask:Well, I'll tell you: While on the phone, I'll be perfectly pleasant, because I've had enough of being yelled at by defensive, petulant strangers as I ever care to. (And that's what you get when you call dipshits on their mistakes, fyi.) But no matter how fantastic your manuscript is, I will never, not ever, work with you.
Do you ever justify saying something because you perceive it as "sort of" the truth?
Do you think that counts if the person you say it to perceives it as completely a lie?
If lying to people to get what you want (eg, a call-back) is is worth it, is it worth it if it means you won't ever get anything else?))
There's just nothing as bad as a devious imbecile.
