hello im anita  I go to Mirrabooka primary school. we are doing a value
adding quest and my friend and I are making milk ice cream the reason why im
asking is because we are not allowed to do something that's already being
made . so have you discovered  milk ice cream to make so we don't copy other
wise we will fail   . please tell me a email address or a phone number of
the factory so I could find out how much the milk would cost. I probably
wont buy any but its part of the project. You know. We are like getting
ready inncasse one day when we're older we actuelly make a factory do we
just need details.

I'll answer your question after you write a one paragraph summary (at least
five sentences) of what you find on the website www.milk.com and what you
think the purpose of the website is, and email that summary back to me.

Cheers,

In not much longer than the time it took you to write that email to me, you
could have also looked over www.milk.com and seen for yourself what it has
to do with your question. My offer still stands: Should you write that
summary, and mail it to me, I promise to tell you everything I know about
the wholesale price of milk.

Moo!

Ah. There's the crux of the matter. So, there's *nothing* on my site that
has anything to do with your question, or with dairy products in general,
other than the name, and you still somehow seem to think that, even so, I
have some sort of special dairy knowledge. There are a *lot* of websites
whose names are common words and whose contents aren't really about those
words. www.monster.com is one, for example, in addition to my own.

What I was trying to get you to realize with the request for a summary was
exactly that. All that's on www.milk.com is my personal home page, stuff
about my music, a computer geeky barcode thing, and a couple other random
bits, none of which have anything to do with milk. I was hoping you'd
realize that this was a very good indication that I'm not part of the dairy
industry, and that you'd realize you're wasting your time trying to get
information out of me that I simply don't have.

By the way, I do know a little bit of general information about how free
market prices tend to work (not specifically dairy), which I would have
told you had you written the five sentence summary. However, you didn't.

Best of luck,

Again, I obliquely hinted at it fairly early on. If your partner had taken
the hint instead of being so stubborn, perhaps you would've saved a lot of
time and trouble.

>but if its www.milk.com then why do u have ur website??

That question is answered on the "About the MILK Logo" page, accessible
right off of the home page, *and* the "Milk Feedback" page (the one that
has my email address) also explicitly points to that page.

Best of luck,

No worries; I wasn't bothered at all. If I had been, then I wouldn't have
replied in the first place. Quite the opposite, really.

Moo!

And you could have written that 5 sentence summary for me a week and a half
ago, and by doing so, you would have realized your problem that much
sooner. You could have also tried other sources of information. Don't try
to blame me for the precarious situation you find yourself in.

Your partner seems to have a much more sanguine attitude about it all.

Moo!

Of course I'm not your teacher, and of course you didn't have to write that
summary for me. I merely requested it of you as part of our friendly email
exchange.

I provided you with an implicit choice: *If* you wrote the summary, then I
would have quickly provided further information. That is, writing the
summary was the price you were to pay for my information on dairy prices.
If you *didn't* write the summary, then all bets were off. It was your
choice not to write the summary, and instead you tried to extract
information from me by other means, none of which worked.

You could have saved a lot of time if, on June 13, you had either decided
to answer my request in the first place, or decided to simply drop the
matter and ignore me, concentrating instead on other possible ways of
solving your problem.

I get from the tone of your recent messages that you are angry with me. If
that's the case, then I am truly sorry that that's how you feel, and I hope
you feel better soon.

Cheers,

-dan
