Hello again, Carol. I neglected to mention earlier:

How is addressing SF Ali as “Ali” with no greeting “respectful” or good communication? I am an unsuccessful entrepreneur but used to be very well-regarded and had traditional “success.” I am considered a “successful” instructor to the present day and also in the few business areas in which I still participate, such as writers’ conferences and with my few remaining business development clients. It’s really not something I’d ever do unless I was at my wits’ end … well now, wait a second. It’s not something I’d do, period, even in a severe business dispute situation.

If this is a new type of entrepreneur form of address, I think it would be good to know. Maybe you could write an article about it?
