We strongly recommend that you do not ignore their request. Ignoring their request, will only inflame the situation and rekindle the conflict.

If you either counter-offer or decline their request, use this box to be in dialogue with them to negotiate an acceptable resolution to this conflict.

After you have completed your response, and if you have not already done so, you may wish to express your side of the conflict and make your own requests. To do so, click on post your conflict.

You are invited to use this box to say whatever else you need to say in order to resolve this conflict. Do not use this box to open up a new conflict.

In some conflicts it is only possible to clarify differences and this can be a step towards a resolution.

Thank you.
