I'm sure all of this is right here in black and white in your policy. You DID read your policy right?

Okay then, don't post on a public board and ask for input. You have had all the steps clearly spelled out for you.

Your posts are extremely unclear, and conflicting. Don't shoot the messenger because you are not getting an answer you want.
