    You don't greet someone like that when you don't have any kind of relationship. I bet it doesn't get past her filters because of that.

    • We do have a prior relationship, of a sort. I've written to her a number of times on these matters, and she's responded to that correspondence. Actual responses too, not form letters. She knows who I am, and although I see your point, I don't think it applies in this case.
