Question
Hello again, I have been unable to leave you a rating because I haven't received your answers in my email. As I explained in my last post to you, I had to change services. Could you please email me a resend of the first query I sent to you, so that I can access the rating system. I was very pleased with your quick response and your extremely helpful information. Thank you, David.

Answer
Hi David,

Don't worry about leaving a numerical rating, it has been disabled because
I personally find it too artificial; but, I want you to know that your kind gratitude
and thoughtful persistence is far more valuable to me than any numerical rating
ever could be!

Thank you for being you.
