Quite frankly, been there, done that, got the t-shirt. And the answer I
get most of the time there is:
- Sorry, email abuse and wait for a reply
- Sorry, I can't help you, wait for a reply on your abuse email
- Sorry, there is nothing I can do, my hands are bound, wait for a reply
from the abuse department
So much regarding the 9 out of 10. It's the 1 remaining that actually
cares and tries something.
