I am sorry, but I disagree with you. I accepted what the export said,
thanked them, and I asked for clarification.  At no point did I insinuate
that they were not telling me the truth; your misquote of my question is
off base.

I would like your export opinion, I respect the time it takes to answer
these emails. I appreciate that there are instances where you find yourself
arguing with someone, and it doesn't seem like they respect the time you
put in. This is not one of those times - although I do understand that
everyone can read into email what they will, assuming that everyone is
arguing with you has got to be taxing. I am sorry you have to go through
