Thank you for reading and responding, Marissa. I'm sorry to hear this and it is not the first time. Similar problems have occured with my work and others I know, and dealing with native-speaking editors, as well. I only hope that, when you made your re-adjustments, you weren't met with any hostility. Some are. Others with blank "stares" and utter confusion. Most editors here don't know how to deal with any response other than, "Yes, please, thank you, may I have some more?" This is a relatively rare occurance but, yes, it can have one reaching the boiling point, I know.
