Look guys, this post wasn't made with any malicious intent, it was a simple question and my reason for asking it.
While I appreciate, respect and welcome your explanation, I am not psychic like many of the amazing people here on Pinside, and I don't deserve to be lambasted because I am not!
Yes, I placed the order on Monday evening in the USA, which I realize is Tuesday in AU, I actually Googled "what time is it in Melbourne, AU" after I submitted the order.
As far as the email I sent, I tapped REPLY on the email titled "Re: Pinball Spare Parts Australia: New Order # 100021684", from my iPhone at 8:39am on Feb 25th (USA PST time). That email went to firstname.lastname@example.org and did not return any send error.
Now, the reason for my question? I have had an experience TWICE before, where I ordered something and paid via Paypal to an eCommerce site that was still online, for businesses that had been OUT of business! I had to fight with Paypal and wait forever to get my money back because Paypal was unable to contact the non-existent business!
An automated eCommerce email order confirmation is NOT proof that a company is still operating, follow up emails, and replies to MY emails are... I got NEITHER of those prior to yesterday when I made this simple inquiry. In the course of defending my very innocent inquiry to this hostile and always HIGHLY judgmental and UBER-defensive crowd, perhaps I made unnecessary comments, but I never made ANY remark that I believed PSPA was trying to defraud me in any way!
PSPA, I apologize that you believed my simple innocent question was "calling you out" or whatever, but I believe my curiosities and concerns were valid based on my admitted total lack of psychic powers. And if everyone here now wants to believe that i'm a huge asshole over this, then so be it!! And I wont bother you folks at PSPA with my pinball parts needs again. Cheers!!
