It’s very easy and inexpensive to self-publish these days through Amazon or other self-publishing providers.
I know someone who has a nasty habit of hanging out in popular frum dating lounges to take in how many dates he can spot.
Lubliner: You couldn’t be more incorrect. 1) You are making a whole host of assumptions to assume everything is kosher 2) the same knife could be used for other non-kosher food items 3) even if there are some local municipal board of health requirements on utensil usage, they are infrequently enforced, and when they are the penalties are extremely light, and the bar can and will get away with whatever they do and consider a $75 ticket a business expense 4) the first lemon is not batul bshishim if that’s the lemon you get.

I can’t tell you how it’s bad, since I don’t know, but I can tell you that it is very bad and no one wants to end up there. Whatever satisfaction someone will get for any aveira, gehenem is 100s of times more painful than whatever one gained.
And under normal circumstances the maximum punishment one can get is 11 months in gehenem.
They’ve been saying all that for the last four generations. The predicted date for the apocalypse keeps getting postponed every time it’s missed. Both the number of students and the number of benefactors keeps going up while the doomsayers keep going down.

This discussion is resolving around cases (such as the op) where the person was originally frum and then dumped halacha.
