O, good! I'm so glad I found u! I'm more than sure u had every good reason to reject it--the problem was that admin wasn't clear on why. Mike, here's what I think u should do. Download the book, then upload, rejecting it, & state why u did it in the comments field. I just could not get that far. I think the problem was that because admin wasn't clear why the rejection, they kicked it back to step 1. &, of course, neither your name or your contact info was present so I couldn't just hit u up. I'm so glad u came out of the woodwork! & I'm *really* sorry if the post caused any hurt feelings--I certainly didn't mean to imply any1 rejected anything w/o cause. Or I could, if you'd rather, but since u rejected it the 1st time u may as well do it for real lol.
