Especially as just about every post was met with a "No, but ...", "No, not that either ...", "No, you've got it totally wrong" etc. Just don't expect a mad rush to sympathise next time. Netiquette? Yeah, right.

And just what on earth are you on about?

In his own inimitable style which has earned him quite the reputation round here, Mervyn is asking for an update, while simultaneously demonstrating his frustration at trying to help someone on this forum who doesn't bother to let us know the upshot, whys and wherefores.

What exactly and Why on earth Feb 16

What exactly am I so worked up about? Me, worked up? It was you that was worked up about something in the first place, remember?

The Why on earth is Why on earth do you find it so annoying that I ask about a dénouement which, I reiterate, you have still not revealed to those who tried to help you, or at least sympathised with you?

If you don't want to tell us, then don't, but shout at your customer, please, or don't shout at your customer, but don't you dare shout at

If you don't want to tell us, then don't, but shout at your customer, please, or don't shout at your customer, but don't you dare shout at me in your eternal, incomprehensible rudeness. I might not be the best ethical model, but if someone listens to me on the forums, I don't end up shouting at them, because why would I?

Every single post of yours, if memory serves me right, is to carp, to complain, to dig at people, to make snide remarks, but never to help, but you also feel you have licence to shout at people who were sympathetic to someone who never ever gives a helping hand to anyone else.

You could say "sorry" and/or "thanks" to those people, but I think those two words stick in your craw, so better to crawl back into your cage.

By this point, given your attitude, I think it's safe to say that nobody gives one single, solitary bugger what happened anyway.

Thanks, Kay.

You shouldn't shout like this on a professional forum. If any site rules are broken, you are certainly free to report them to the moderators.

... still here, you know. At least a dozen or so people aching to know what happened in the end. Did you kick butt? Was your butt kicked? Either way, we need the info to enlighten us, and help us deal with difficult customers. Let us into your mind, and tell us how you handled it. Tell us if you handled it softly or roughly. Tell us about the outcome. Was it a huge rush in the end? Or just a little trickle? We won't judge you.

Dear ... Feb 22

... Mr Lincoln Hui,

Apparently if I address you specifically, I might have a better chance of getting a response. Is that the way it works?

So, any updates for us? Any exciting developments? Go on, spit it out. You can tell us. Or what was the point to all this?
