People join and leave forums all the time, so what? What were we all supposed to do, acknowledge this persons great genius after one post? They seem a little flighty to me.
People don't respond to my posts either, but so what? I learn, I contribute what I can, and that's it. I don't think people here are unfriendly or unhelpful, but they are sure are snobby. It's like being back in high school, you have to be a part of their little 'clay clique" before they will grace your post with a reply.
I keep reading how friendly they are here, I wonder when I will see evidence of that?
I must agree with neilestrick - a careful reading of the OP's post will show that she DID get what she paid for. She knew the wheel had a wobble in it BEFORE it left the supplier.
The problem now is how to get a wheel that works like you want it to, and it COULD be as simple as having the supplier "whack it." Or it could involve lots of blustering, threats, and anger, which is probably the best way to proceed. If society teaches us anything, anger and angry tirades are the way to get results.
Get three or four of the biggest guys you can find, bring the wheel back to the store, and tell the owner you ARE going to return the wheel, right? Then be sure to knock over a few of his displays just to make the point that YOU are not to be messed with.
That'll teach 'im.
That's the way to get things done in America.
