Please make a posting on this site so that I can accept your answer. You made a free post, and I can't pay you until you make a regular post, even if it is just to say "Hi."
I am not paying you because I feel that you answered my question--I was wholely disappointed in this area and therefore, I will only be paying $5. I am instead paying you to 1) protect my accept rate and 2) because Jon_050 pissed me off with the private message he sent me. (I have enclosed a copy of my reply below because I can't make a comment on his posting above, but I do want it known on the website of how rude he was to me!
REPLY TO PRIVATE MESSAGE:
When I first started reading your message below, I found a few comments annoying (marked in green text), but I thought to myself, "You know what--even though this guy hasn't answered my question in the way I wanted, I will still pay him because he 1) took the initiative to contact me and 2) had actually done some research on my problem."
Then I kept reading and came to comments that completely pissed me off with their rudeness! (These are marked in red text below.) No wonder you sent me a private message. If I were you, I wouldn't want anyone else on the site to be in a position to see how truly insolent you can be! I'm still debating on whether I should post this message on the site or not because I am so angry with your horrible reply!
I will definitely be making a negative comment on your feedback form, and you've made up my mind to reward the other guy who had posted on the site. He may not have answered my question either, but at least he wasn't a total jerk about it!
Oh, one final thought--the last time I knew, if the customer is paying for a service and has set the perameters of what she was expecting, then it's not up to YOU to determine what she should accept or not accept. That is the very nature of this website--the customer picks the answer that is BEST for him or her--NOT the specialist. I hope in the future that you remember this little fact if you plan on getting more accepts of any kind!
