Ethical Dilemma

Advise me, dear readers. You may remember that way back in December I posted about a journal that hadn’t paid me, despite signing a contract with me, and that I received a snippy email from the journal’s editor when I queried the non-payment, telling me that she had more important things to worry about and I would get my money on 4 January.

I didn’t get my money.

I emailed her again on 18 January.

There has been a complete silence.

The journal is still publishing.

Now, should I name and shame and perhaps protect other writers from the same fate? Or should I say nothing if I can’t say anything nice and move on, accepting that once in a while we all get burned?

I really don’t know what to do.
