Yeah, the point of copying the list is that I'm probably not the only person
he contacted, and I wanted to make sure everybody understood that there
are reasons not to work with them.

And just in case the publisher reads this in the archives, the solution to
this universal animosity is to pay the authors screwed in the Wrox Press
bankruptcy all the royalties that were due them, even if Packt isn't legally
required to.  That would go a long way to cure the bad blood between
technical authors and the management of Packt.
