Hi James, agreed! While I might not have worded my objection to this piece so colorfully, you have every right to be outraged. It's possible that this person submitted a story that wasn't anything like this and then edited it to change it after it was published. It seems hard to think it would get past the editors otherwise.

Well done for spotting it and bringing it to the attention of the editors.

You have my full support, this person doesn't belong on Illumination.
