It does not matter if you are A list or D list. Once you get on the smallest radar people will come out the woodwork asking for things. If you are at a point where you have someone as your filter it is up to you to decide what your filter criteria will be and how much oversight you will do. This is where the second issue comes in. It is clear if you are going after an A lister that you are not sending e-mails directly to them. In most cases, it is going to be a quite a few layers before you get to them. As you go down that can vary and some people outsource to a firm who may or may not really take time to consider who they turn down and who they don’t.
