    Regarding your wildsound thingies, just wanted to mention that I have received emails from them as early as 2007, all of them including Matt Toffolo and Jen Frankel (co creators), worked for them briefly as a script evaluator in 2007 or 08 (cant remember) and had a nice heated discussion with them about their practices (including heavy spamming and using fake profiles on social media) in these years too… 🙂

      Thank you for your input and your support on this topic. Their practices haven’t changed, despite Matthew insistence to the contrary. I’ve recently been “followed” by three different Wildsound Twitter accounts- all of which I’ve blocked, btw. I’ll be writing to you off-blog. Thanks again!

    Matt connected with me on Stage 32 last year and I entered their Log line and First ten pages contest. I did get a page of “notes” that was very clear from the start that they didn’t even read the ten pages I sent. A month ago, I was emailed by “Matt” that they were “Blasting out” my log line again, and of course asked for more money for various services, contests, etc. Lesson learned!
