I have indeed been "repaid" though it sat at AO for 18 years losing value. I experienced a lot of foot dragging and people curiously missing from post, but after 3 weeks of stalling I used the magic word and was handed a check in under 24 hours (amazing what happens when those folks are properly motivated).
I suppose I see now why I wasnt well received here, I had thrown in the towel years ago on the C of S and as such I have no venom left.
We or at least I choose to agree to disagree. Have a pleasant weekend one and all. Jack
