I own 100% Week In Ethereum. Editorial control has always been me.

If you’re wondering “why didn’t my post make it into Week in Ethereum,” then here’s a hint: don’t email me. Do put it on Reddit.

It’s amazing to me how many people email me when every issue has a link at the bottom saying not to email me to get in the newsletter.

If you’re unhappy with editorial decisions or anything that I have written in this issue, feel free to tweet at me.

I want your links: weekinethereumnews.com
