Packt are kicking up a fuss about headdings existing without any text between them in places... Such as: https://leanpub.com/holistic-infosec-for-web-developers/read#leanpub-auto-cookies
They want me to add filler text. I'm not happy about adding filler text when I didn't think anything needed to be said. They also said during the negotiation phase that they would be taking the manuscript as is, not taking it and technical editing it again

Hmm, yeah, Packt is my least favorite of all publishers, but it is what it is. They see it from the perspective of how those headings will read in print versus online. I see where there coming from, but tedious nonetheless. And yes, they try to save money everywhere, editing is definitely on us.
