Just a follow-up to my correspondence with Blair, from Ironclad. I e-mailed him as he suggested, and true to his word, he contacted Stardock on my behalf. Very nice of him to do that.
Anyway, Stardock says they don't want my money because I returned "every game" I ever bought from them!! LOL. I made many purchases on Impulse over the years and only ever returned two games: Demigod and Elemental. Need I say more?
In any event, I used, not misused, their own return policies and they banned me from making any future purchases!!! Doh! There must be some fine print someplace I missed where if you ask them to honor their own policy they will refuse to take any future money from you
On well, as nin said, I suppose they are giving me permission to seek other, less savory methods of acquiring the game.
