It's simple: I'm not stupid, and don't need you educating me on how the current global crisis is impacting manufacturing and shipping. The fact that you felt you needed to explain both of those things to someone you don't know is insulting and condescending.
If you'd bothered to read the last bunch of pages, you'd see that many that are following the thread have wondered how COVID is impacting the vendor's ability to receive and deliver on orders. You'll see that I had an order in and delivered already in the last few months, and reported on how COVID has impacted their delivery timelines. You'll see that Nick and others have done the same thing. You'll see that I used Nick's most recent order as a baseline for my own expectations. You'll see that I updated my own timeline a week later, to help baseline others' expectations. Lastly, you'll see a response where someone thanked me for doing so.
Now, instead of asking how I found your answer "snarky" (which was TBH the most polite way I could think of describing your rudeness), how about you try this: Why don't you let us all know why you felt the need to explain to me that COVID was happening and impacting shipping times? As I look at it, there's only four options:
1) You felt the need to preach
2) You thought I was a complete idiot and unaware
3) You didn't read through the last few pages of posts and were unaware of everything I outlined above
4) Your social graces in online forums are lacking and you didn't understand 1-3
IMO, any of those four are unacceptable, and push your response into the realm of "snarky".
If you want help with #4
, feel free to ask. Please lets not derail the thread any more though, and ask in a PM to save others the grief. Otherwise, if it's 1-3, I'm writing off helping you understand as an exercise in futility and that's MY
last comment on the topic.
