We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Subject: I do actually :) When they descrie what they want and I tell the the approximate cost they usually hmmmm and hummm. I then tell them that they are asking for a dress similar to another BNDM so they'd need to expect the same costs that go along with it. Once you delicately confront them with that information, they tend to change their tune and realize you won't be walked over as a dressmaker. Yes, it's somewhat awkward but it also lets people know that you're in charge, not them.

tough love for some customers is needed

I think that is much easier to do with an in-person meeting, but hard via email. At least that has been my experience. (NT).Thursday, April 23, 08:22:42pm
