We’ve spent more than 11 years working on trying to help ourselves and others to only consult and use the best medical people and organisations, (never worked so hard,) and to avoid those who perhaps are not the best, and to us, the bottom line is that we should go with the ones that provide the best responses to emails – it’s that simple. It took us a while to learn this, and in one particular case, in the early years, when we hadn’t learnt it, it resulted in disaster for one of us – not only were we not helped, we were damaged for life, it can’t be reversed. It’s simple – the ones who are not the best will never even acknowledge our emails, and will certainly NEVER EVER put anything in writing.
Further, if one sends a letter to someone using an ordinary email address, and hasn’t got even an acknowledgement of it within a reasonable time, one HAS to assume that that someone is a crook, who, if needs be, will deny that he or she has ever got the email – and there’s not a thing that can be done about it.
As an example, one would assume that if one has sent an email using an email address on the University of Sydney’s website, that the person to whom it has been addressed has got it – but no, people like Andrew Brooks would, if needs be, deny that he’d received emails sent using firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Our regular readers may think we’re obsessed with Andrew Brooks – and perhaps we are. Of course, Brooks, at one stage, claimed that the email address on his website had been set up so that emails sent to him by patients were “weeded out” so that he didn’t receive them, something quite unique to Brooks, one would have thought, – and, of course, a brain dead Privacy Commissioner accepted this as a reasonable excuse for him not to have responded to some emails he should have responded to.)
The good guys, of course, if they haven’t received any emails for a while, send themselves an email, and if they don’t receive it, which is incredibly unlikely, will take steps to have the address fixed, or will take it down, or will, at least, provide warnings that emails sent using it, may not be received.
