Actually he reported that he did ask you for information and his take on
the information was that it made no sense, hence he asked us...IMHO that's
a reasonable thing to do.  To me it looks like your trying to spin the
event now, this post has a quite different tone and information than the
first you made here.  It makes it hard to take you seriously...but it 
was hard to take the whole thing seriously from the first still
makes no sense that you won't guarantee routing for him unless he makes
you his primary provider.  It sounds like you're just trying to tie him

I don't think that you are couldn't count on you unless
you were the primary provider.
