Policy or no policy, customers who are dickheads to me get put at the
very bottom of my queue and priority list.  They don't get *ignored*,
but they're put waaaaaaaaay down there.  The nice ones, the chummy ones
or ones who let me know that what I do for them is appreciated obviously
will get a higher preference.

We're not all robots.  We do have feelings, regardless of policy, and
if you had a T1, T3, whatever with me, and you publicly attacked me on
mailing lists, you can bet your bottom dollar that I'm not going to be
too nice to you.
