Everything you say is true, Mike. But when the only reason the book is returned seems to be that the copyright holder needs to be verified ... I guess the idea is that the validator can do that and re-upload the validated copy the he/she has, but I wonder how many validators check the download list to see if their book has been returned. I'm starting to do that now, but I've never done it before. Or it would be nice if the validator as well as the submitter got a rejection letter, which I think someone said might happen in the future. I hate to validate a book that someone else has already validated and that just needs some verification, but since we're not supposed to send books to each other, there's no other alternative, it seems. I'm now checking every day to see if the books I uploaded are in the collection, and if not, if they're back on the download list. A couple are still in the administrator queue, apparently.
