Hi All and Matteo,

After reviewing all the responses both many negative and many positive (curiously many positive responses were sent to me "off list", while all negative were sent "on list"), and must digest it all and conclude that what Lou Deeter has written below is profound and enlightening to me.

I would like to apologize for being impatient and jumping the gun. Sometimes, when "all the moons are in alignment", things can get off beat. I am sure all of us have had experiences where they really didn't like someone, right from the start. Then things just escalate from there. Perhaps I was uptight at the time. Maybe if I were a common eBay seller I would have had a different perspective from the beginning.

In any event, I would like to still maintain my ascertains about Matteo's poor attitude and non-business like manner of handling the issue.

And again, I would like to apologize for my impatience and not taking the time to work through the problem. In the future I should step back and see if there is another perspective.

I will do what is necessary, if there is any mechanism, to remove the "negative feedback". Perhaps Matteo can challenge the "negative feedback" and I can acknowledge a resolution.
