I've no further comment to make beyond what I wrote in the comments section.
Update (12:49 PM Eastern on 20 Jul): The writer of the "scandalous letter" (Joel Flegler, editor of Fanfare magazine) the authenticity of which I questioned in my comment in the comments section of the above linked post has admitted his authorship of the letter in question in a comment in that same comments section. His defense (or, rather, rationalization) of its contents makes for, um, interesting reading, to which defense I've responded in a subsequent comment in that comments section which reads:
That's an, um, interesting defense (or, rather, rationalization) of your magazine's CD review policy, Mr. Flegler. What undercuts that defense, however, is that nowhere in your magazine is that CD review policy made public. Would that you were as honest and straightforward with your magazine's subscribers as you apparently are with those seeking reviews of their CDs.
Update 3 (11:26 AM Eastern on 21 Jul): For the CD review policy of another prominent music magazine, see here.
