Hello, that's quite a rude response to a polite enquiry. You hadn't posted for 6 days, so I was concerned.

You're perfectly entitled to opt out of this topic, just as I'm entitled to post on it while it's still open. Or, when you've finished corresponding here, you can ask for it to be closed. But please be nice - nobody is treating you with any disrespect.
