It's not much different than "I was in a vehicle collision, and my rear bumper was smashed. Where should I go to get a quote?" And people then responding with: "Pics?" "How much damage?" "Is the frame/modular-body bent?" "What were the circumstances of the collision?" blah blah blah.

If a poster prefers to keep the story to him/herself, then a poster should probably not write something on the Internet about it.

Just my opinion.

fair enough and good points. In the end, the OP was only looking for advice, but it seems people's expectations ran it's course with this thread. The OP stated previously, after requests for more info, that he prefers not to mention further details unless he can't resolve things. I too would like to hear the background on the story, but after the OP stated his intent, I don't see a reason to badger him about it.
