Resistance comes about when someone with a severe case of stubbornness
ignores being told that a particular "contribution" is not desired, not
asked for nor even legal. Cases in point - your mirrors, Qumran

translations and at this point your further presence here is

raised and learn when mistakes are pointed out. 

You did the first thing. None of the rest.

c) maintaining good relationships with publishers is a priority to us.
