>Are you kidding me Walter?
No Mike, I am not kidding you.
>I sent you the email on 26 Jan, you never
>confirmed that you wanted them,
You actually sent the initial email on January 20. I confirmed then.
The email you sent on January 26 was in response to mine asking you if they
were ready. I confirmed then as well. You told me you were sending them to
me, along with a bill. My reponse then was "thanks."
>I sent you another email yesterday.
I received no email from you yesterday.
>still no response, and today you accuse me of "dropping >the ball".
Yes, I do accuse you of "dropping the ball," particularly when we started
this transaction on January 20. I stand by what I wrote.
How, can I pay you when I don't know the amount? I requested that you send
me the amount with shipping on Janury 20. You never did.
>and without even an agreement on the price
I trusted you would be fair. I still do. You never sent me an amount
>it would be stupid for me to just send them
Really? I don't think so. Besides, I never asked that you send them
without payment. On teh other hand, every single transaction I have ever
had with Blaine (and many others) has been done that way. Material and
money frequently cross paths in the mail.
In all the years I have been on the list, the countless kgs of material I
have bought, from every part of the world and most major dealers, have I
ever not paid anyone? Has anyone ever received a bad check from me? Have I
ever not paid you?
>remember, I had to sue Mr. Casper in court for the
Please don't be insulting. There is no need.
>I think you are demanding a little much here
What, exactly, am I demanding?
Seriously, what I am demanding???
>especially considering that
>over two weeks, you never answered me.
Wrong, Mike. You have it reversed.
>Perhaps you can tell me why you don't answer your >emails.
I stand by what I wrote.
