I would repeat an earlier post request to have this conversation moved to another thread. I can appreciate how important it is to the parties involved and how it fits well into the theme of this progression thread as it is about progression.
However, your back and forth conversation will give the impression that this thread is becoming a flame fest and that is against the forum rules and could get it locked.
I'm sure all parties involved, however they may not like or respect each other, can respect this thread, its OP, and the wishes of those who post here to prevent it from being locked.
Thank you for your understanding and best of luck in your conversation in a new thread.
