Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

You were talking to our bot, now you have a real person.

You feel harassed, is it based only on your age/race/sex/national origin/disability?

I’m not sure who is alleging harassment. They won’t tell me. It may be the same person who is hostile towards me and she is trying to cover herself by falsifying events?

Thank you for your reply. I am sorry for the delays, but we are working with multiple customers all of whom deserve the same time as you deserve, so our replies can take time. Thank you for your patience.

Since you posted the last statement, if you do not wish to continue, let me know because we experts are not site employees and are not paid by the site and if you not wish to continue we can end this here.
