[quote="ostarella"][quote="rob-lost"]Nope.

Speaking as someone who has worked in customer service for several years in AND out of IT, they don't get that leeway.

They put their name on this. It's theirs. They operate. They don't get to take the credit when it works, then sidestep when things go sour.

And things are very sour right now.

When I go to a restaurant, I don't care whether the restaurant owns or leases the place. I don't care that it's up to the landlord to fix the leaky toilet. I just know I'm not going back.[/quote]
----------------
I contacted Customer Service - at least got a response that they were "re-making everything". Maybe if others contacted CS and let them know how this crap is actually affecting their bottom line, it might - MIGHT - wake them up.[/quote]
====================

maybe if it really were affecting the bottom line they would do something

i still suspect the workerbees are doing what they can in the situation the suits handed them

i have no idea what the suits are thinking
but i suspect they may be having financial problems and not focusing on things like the community/forum

but that is because of brian doing it

maybe they just abandoned the forum and forgot to tell everybody

This forum is falling apart.
You ask me what I thought about
Before we were lovers.
The answer is easy.
Before I met you
I didn't have anything to think about.

Well, at least you and Ostarella are giving us some posts to read. :D
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

============

i much prefer posting true information than correcting the erroneous claims of others too

i use proof facts and evidence while they prefer to disparage same while claiming opinions are true
yet have zero evidence to show for their claims

very smart
why waste time trying to do the impossible

you have nothing to disprove anything i said

and you have provided nothing to prove what your opinion claims
