Late ratings...my bad

No excuses...despite a killer work schedule and family tragedies and life (but almost NO observing) in general I still managed to get a slew of quickie AM transactions done for some cash but failed in the late ratings department. I saved the stack of transactions I have to go through to "make nice" to the community but I feel bad.

Whats my penance?

Is it my imagination or are ratings not as important these days. I fully intend to follow up with these guys over the next days whether they reciprocate or not. Its the principal of AM.

If one of these includes you...you'll be hearing from me shortly wink

When you have quite a bit of ratings accumulated, it is not so bad, but when you are new, you count on every single rating you can get... 8)

Communicating with them is the right thing to do... wink
