Scott Both lines of reasoning can be true. And I think one has to look at this on a case by case basis. There are some submitters who submit "as is" while some go through many many hoops to perfect their submissions. Some books need nothing more than a cursory once-over while others on the extreme would be best scanned completely over again -- and most fall somewhere in between, of course. And the members of this list who speak out aren't necessarily a representative sampling of the volunteer pool so deriving a consensus here wouldn't prove much. Let me just say that I OFTEN MAKE MY CHOICE IN WHICH BOOKS TO validate based onthe submitter as much as the book itself.
