Let’s see if other writers agree.
Instead of putting stories on hold, either you publish or reject them right away.
If a story is good, then it’s good. If HN staff have second thoughts about it, then giving it a second or third chance or look won’t change a thing.
People wait, become frustrated and keep asking the same question over and over again: when is my story going to be published?
It may sound heartless, but think again.
