That's great and all but have you read the reply that I had originally
made to the OP. It does not "seem" like it from your comments.

Reasonable assistance I think that was pretty reasonable, I do not
recall anyone paying something for anything I have said and it seemed to
me that he was asking for more of a confirmation.
I do not like smart asses either, which in turn is why I am still
replying to comments about the followup and why I don't know that I feel
I should have to defend my self on this matter.
The followup that I had made as I already stated was confirming the
problem was on his end and in no way that I see was offending, maybe I
could have choose different words but that does not relieve the response
I had received after from Ed.
If you want to call someone something call them by the respective name
or email address that they have spoken with. I do not ever recall naming
Ed anything other than his own name nor anyone else. As spoken do on to
others as you would do onto your self. I repeat my name is not Sherlock
Constructive ? there was nothing non-constructive about the followup I
had made. I have missed plenty of things in the past and would never
claim otherwise and the information that I offered certainly was not
complete but was meant not to be, and not in a critiquing manner.
