[AI] Sorry if offtopic but very important

Hi Shahdab

These are initial problems any free lancer has to pass through.

Rejected articles, stories are totally normal happenings.

A job of an interviewer is to bring out interesting things about the subject 
in a live and informative way. There should be something for the reader to 
get after going through it all.

The interviewer does not vouch or the credibility of the subject in any way.

I don't think there should be any reason for worry as long as you haven't 
distorted facts which was made available to you.
