Just saying (And both the original and your reply might be totally above board), if anyone didn't trust the original, they're not going to trust you either, especially to my knowledge you'be never posted in this NG recently! Again, just saying.

Roger,
Thank you so much for the support! I really appreciate it. Although I thi nk Quicken deleted my post in the community forum. :-( Thankfully, I was a ble to gather excellent information/feedback for my study before they took my post down. Many thanks to you and the other members who put their faith in me.
Best, Nancy Fae

Hi @Andrew,
I totally understand your concerns. I would feel the same way. While I se nt my request to my personal and professional contacts, given the content o f my study, I felt it was imperative that I reach out to the actual Quicken community even knowing there would be natural hesitation.
I have been a member of Quicken's official community forum, but I have been posting under a different personal alias. I have a love/hate relationship with Quicken, so I did not publish my real name. For my research request, however, I put my name, contact info, and life's info out there in hopes o f helping my legitimacy. Admittedly, I have not posted on this site. A su peruser from the official forum suggested I reach out here.
At the end of the day, participation in my research is voluntary. I would love to get your feedback and hear from others, but you have to be comforta ble with doing so. I truly understand if you decline.
Sincerely, NancyFae King
