The Godfather prints are shipping as we speak. We are however getting about 200 emails a day asking about the status of the print with some being very specific. It takes on average 2-3 minutes to answer each e-mail. Multiply that by 200 a day and you can see how we are spending much more time on Administrative work rather than shipping. We would kindly ask that you refrain from asking status for just the next 7 days so we can get all of these out. This includes both Usual Suspects and True Romance Variants as well.

We understand your concerns and acknowledge why you would be anxious to receive these as you have paid for them and it is your right. Please help us to have the time to get these to you.

Thank you and have a great evening.
I am glad this was posted though. Up till now I thought this was mostly all just incompetency, but now I see that it's pretty much full blown delusion as well.

I suspect a bit of sociopathy as well.
So it goes...

Wow just wow. I just don't know what to say.

Hey Roman, you ever think that the reason people are hounding you via email is because you are so mind numbingly incredibly late on getting people these prints. GFII or Usual Suspects or True Romance.

You don't think you should have ANY accountability on your end?

Maybe you should have someone dedicated to do that....oh wait they quit.... :pint:

That's a lot of emails for a gf2 run of what? 600 tops? How many of those are from Nigerian princes? Be honest.
