Rejection sucks. That doesn’t mean you get to backtalk people who have chosen not to work with you. Not only does it look foolish because apparently these editors were good enough for you when you pitched them (and suddenly they’re not worthy once you find out it’s a no), but it also endangers your future as an author: you can get blacklisted, put on blast as a brat, or even ruin your chances to work with a publication/editor/organization again. It’s not only plain rude to talk back to editors trying to change their minds or make them sorry; it’s bad for your future opportunities.
