Why me.. part 3

The big guns have been broken out concerning the ever-absent "Submit" button. For those not up to speed, read part 1 and part 2.

I got an e-mail from the (take a big breath) "Vice President of Internet Operations" concerning the a.w.o.l. submit button.

Here's the e-mail. What he said is on the bottom. My reply is on the top.

I appreciate your honesty, it does not go unnoticed.

However, AND DON'T SKIM THROUGH THIS. READ IT. Sorry to be so blunt but
I want to make damn sure you read all this.

I am going to state to you now a few things just to get this in the open:

1) I'm not one of those stupid end users who doesn't know how to use a
computer. I deal with those people every single day where I work.

2) I have absolutely zero spyware, zero pop-up blockers, zero browser
"enhancements" (Google Toolbar, Yahoo! Toolbar, etc), and I run
anti-virus manually. There are no resident programs (like Norton or
McAfee) which would in any way interfere with my browsing. My computer
is routinely scanned with Spybot Search & Destroy, and LavaSoft Ad-Aware.

3) My browsers are 100% stock. My Microsoft Internet Explorer is version
6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519 (the latest version) - which I
only keep on my Windows XP Pro system because Windows requires it. My
browser of choice is Mozilla Firefox 1.0.3 which is what I currently use.

4) I have tested the b2b section of the web site with MSIE. With IE, I
purposely turned OFF the built-in pop-up blocker and set the security to
"low" - it didn't help.

5) I have tested the b2b section of the web site with Mozilla Firefox
1.0.3. Again, I turned off the built-in pop-up blocker and set it to
allow everything just to see if I could find that SUBMIT button. No luck
at all.

6) Before testing, I dumped the cache and cookies for both browsers.
This didn't help.

7) I just rebuilt one of my file server boxes on my home network with
Windows XP Pro with the latest Service Pack. 100% STOCK. Nothing is on
the box except what comes with Windows. The button STILL DOESN'T EXIST
when I try to get to it in the b2b section.

So in the end, it's this:

There is something wrong with the b2b section. I have proven this time
and time again.

If I have to, I will PERSONALLY set up a VNC (or NetMeeting, your
choice) session so you can SEE FOR YOURSELF what happens.

It just gets better and better and better. It'll be interesting to see what excuse they'll try this time.

If I get one more lame attempt to point the problem at anyone but themselves, I'm just going to take my refund and be on my way.
