I know this may sound like I'm trying to "get in the last word," but this silly system will not let me address others until I've "replied" to you and closed out the question.
The intent, I think, was to be sure no one was left hanging, but in the finance and tax area, where our answers are rarely simple, it ends up being a constraint.
So, bye for now.
But again, you can just ask for me, set me up as a preferred expert OR even come back here, when you need more.
Also, the service has just added an "offer more" feature (for some of us
) that will allow us to exchange contact information and work together in other ways, when it becomes clear that this rather disjointed back and forth exchange is not really efficient.
Excited about that one ... up until now anonymity was part of the contract here (Although somehow your phone number made it through the system, the email was xxxx'ed out).
Regardless the "offer more" feature changes all that, and again, this would be for some future, different issue.
Closing out for now.
