One thing I will say is that their communication is terrible as I had to phone them half a dozen times as they seem to forget to respond to emails or PMs on here.
Idnan,

You are not responsible for my problem, so do not give it a thought, the thought never crossed my mind that it was in any way your fault for "encouraging" me to go ahead with the deal.

Best wishes,

Michael.

You lot would not believe the sudden rush of e-mails (some written @ 3.40am their time) and phone calls from the supplier, after our little guessing game last night, they appeared to be soiling their pants, then when you have a good think about what they said and the deal they offered they are making sure it does not cost them a penny, and to hell with me.

You see another example of the incompetence and/or stupidity was to include an invoice that showed the actual price they paid !!!!! The "wonderful deal" to keep me quiet, surprise, surprise, was just what it cost them !

There was a audible "gulp" when I told them I had their invoice, so now they have gone away for a re-think.

I know you are getting bored now, but I have to adopt a selfish attitude, and look after myself, because no one else will, and wait for the next offer, I doubt this will be acceptable to me, and even if it is i will do the "right thing" and let you know one way or another who to avoid (most of you have guessed anyway).

If you are really desperate you could PM the posters who have clearly shown they have inside knowledge from their comments in this thread, but please don't blurt it out until negotiations are complete.

I just hope it is not a big anti-climax, when it comes out, but you must remenber, it is a big deal to me.

Best wishes,

Michael.

Fair enough mate, you look after yourself, hope you reach some sort of acceptable conclusion.

Doh, just spoken to Tony, he could have filled me in .

Don't recall anyone saying it was a 5 Star thread.

If you think it is that funny, perhaps you would like to refund the 1400 for the entertainment value !

I thought the idea of this forum was to share knowledge & experience to help others, not take the piss, NOT a laughing matter !

I wouldn't wish this on anyone, but maybe I could make an exception in your case.

Not taking the Piss - far from it. This thread is useless to us all without any info - It's just your personal crusade. Spill the beans or let it lie - All these questions could have been answered in PM to the mods.

and as for this "I wouldn't wish this on anyone, but maybe I could make an exception in your case." - lovely

Tony has been consulted, and he is happy, so am I supposed to risk the chance of a favourable outcome just to keep you lot amused ??

If you check out the original post, I just asked how to post in multiple forums, incidentally this has never been answered on here, all I was doing by answering the probing questions was trying to keep you lot happy, while preserving my chances, obviously I failed miserably.

Lesson learned !!!!!!!

Fair enough - you can't help people wanting to know the full story! As you have already stated - it could be in the greater interest of the forum. As you have also already stated - you are being selfish. Nothing wrong with that. Why not have the thread closed whilst you are negotiating with " insert company here"? - if you don't get the result you wish for - Then open a thread about it. As for your original question - I don't think it can be done without the help of a Mod.

Hi everyone,

I have asked Mods (Viv) to close this thread, (No, I have not had a satisfactory outcome, very far from it).

Just a bit stressed over the situation, and found some of my replies to posts yesterday were "out of character" for me, it is obviously getting to me more than I realised. So best closed I think.

My apologies to Paul especially, and anyone else.

Best wishes,

Michael.

I'd say weve all made our own conclusions anyway.

The danger of a thread like this is that many of us will be wrong. I've had 2 pm asking me who I think it is, but do I know well enough to tarnish a companies reputation? No.

You almost now need to tell 'the whole story' for fear of damaging other sponsors and subsequently the whole form as a result. Sorry mate, but I doubt the Mods would have allowed this thread if they knew this would be the outcome. Delete the thread for what? The damage is done!

Matt

Fair enough if while the matter is being "dealt" with, the OP doesn't want to say anything....

I think the truth should be out!....
