Rick -

When a publisher responds to an ADVANCED (2nd, 3rd etc.) claim by saying
- "The issue was sent on ......(date) - probably it is in transit to you
... please wait..."  or another typical answer - "The issue was sent on
... please check etc." - I cannot but call these answers - not serious:
in the time I do my 2nd or 3rd claim, the issue should have been here
long ago. So what is there to wait or to check? If the issue would have
arrived, would I perform a REPEATED claim?! I don't think so ...
