Actually I said...

"may very well have played a big part in Michael's decision". I did not "Assume" it was mine that did it. I am stating that along with the efforts of many at that very same time I would be honored with the thought that mine "may have" played a part in his decision. Very shortly after your name was back on the board.

In the statement you made that I referred to above, you "Assumed" we were "Confused", This statement will be understood as condescending and judgmental concerning the intelligence of others. It displays an Ego and a superiority of intelligence. I think that I may not be the only one that stopped reading the post after reading that one line.

Point is "Elaboration" is not the problem but tact and giving others the benefit of doubt without "assuming" inferior intellect of others could go a long way towards restoring your credibility. You broke the first rule in salesmanship and blew the sale.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.
