You're allowed to have your opinion. I didn't say you weren't able to. It's the continual arguing of the point ad nauseum which is/was unwarranted. That was the point I was trying to make. We know what you think. We get it loud and clear. Why keep on about it? And yes, continual argument and forcing of the opinion that the book title should change does equate to bullying. Would it not be better to simply let sleeping dogs lie?
Try putting the boot on the other foot for a minute.
You have just spent the last 3-4 years painstakingly researching a subject for your book, and you decide on a name which you think suits the subject for whatever reason. You then tell your target audience that the book is now available, and you a quite rightly proud of your efforts after 3-4 years of hard toil (not to mention spending quite a bit of money to bring the project to fruition).
You then have a few people who have absolutely no intention of buying your book, or even have any interest in the subject giving their opinion on the title you have chosen. Think about it. 3-4 years of your time invested in your book, only to have a few people who aren't even interested in it take issue with your work's title.
