    This fits better in the Random Topic Center as humor, so moving it there.

    um no pop i think there being serious and not joking around, if i were them and i saw your comment it would seriously make me mad. I can completely sympatise with there situation and i belive this topic should STAY right here so that PUI can see it, cause lets face it this is where everyone looks the most

    IMO what is NEWS worthy of this?

    AND UKP has a wicked sense of humor, I hope this is ONE way of coping with their difficulties.

    Uh BUT if its here PUI HAS to pay attention?
    We hope but I don't know why they are obligated to do so.

    C'mon... we all know those ABSURD corpororate PARTY line Customer DisService Non-answers.

    Funny, yet so aggravating...

    This alone notes at how Distributors will screw up Organized Play. I mean, look at the grammatical errors: 'Are' and 'Organised". Organised sounds like some sort of medical operation. And yes I'd love to take part in this evil scheme. Click below to see the picture used on the UK distributors site:

    I wouldn't put too much weight on "grammatical errors". Remember, these are, in many cases, translations from other languages and by people for whom English is a second language.

    And in much of the world, 's' is used instead of 'z' for words like that. We're the ones that are funky in using a z.

    WHoa perhaps progress?

    BUT then again I'll be a doubting Thomas...

    I want to READ when YOU FINALLY have something in your HANDS...

    THAT would definitely qualify as NEWS!!!

    Pop has a point here. In many places (like Europe), they will spell their words differently than we do. We might say "color" and they will say "colour" (I think thats how its spelled. No offense if I spelled it wrong).

    As for this thing about it being humor, I'm sorry, but I wouldn't quallify this stuff as humor. Companies do make excuses to customers in most cases because the company doesn't want to admit that they screwed up. I've had the same thing happen to me many times, as well as my parents. I think that this should stay in the TCG News because this seems to be more of a concern than anything else.
