I, too, read Judith's explanations of why she failed to seek your permission before completing her publication. I could not help but check out the spreadsheet on Google that is keeping track of all other examples of copyright theft.
So, Judith, what's your excuse for the five other articles in the October 2010 issue that were swiped, the 25 in August 2010 issue, the 30 in the July 2010 issue, 14 in June, seven in May, 16 in April, three in March, seven in February, 20 in January, six December 2009 and 11 in November 2009? Let's not forget two in the Fall 2010 issue, and 12 in the Pumpkin's Fest issue.
I've always been told that email is not private, anymore than snail-mail letters are. As the recipient, you have the prerogative to publish what was transmitted to you, even as you have the right to publish what you yourself have written. It may help to settle the questions that are being raised by Judith's latest allegations if you were to publicize all the emails sent and received.
