  •  Um... No where in your initial letter (0+ / 0-)

    did you mention you were a woman. I assume, therefore, your email address suggested it. Otherwise you'd be getting upset at someone treating you like a woman while assuming that they'd assume you were a woman because you were a secretary. And that'd be ridiculous.

    Anyway, I think writing walls of text to reviewers is kind of pointless. I'm pretty sure he was more trying to brush you off rather than explain anything. Writing walls of text complaining about a program to someone who was given that program to use for a week or two, as an assignment, and write a review of it is, in my opinion, misdirected effort. You should be complaining to Microsoft... Of course, that is pointless, too, since they are big enough to ignore customer concerns and do whatever they want.

    If you're forced by your employer to use this version of office, then I am truly sorry. If you aren't then I suggest exploring the possibility of using some alternatives.

      Why did he feel the need to "brush her off"?  If he felt her criticisms weren't valid, or he didn't have a lot of time, he could simply have left her e-mail unanswered.  

      As for your first point, the other diarist explained in her comments that her gender was apparent from the contact information, which appeared at the bottom of her e-mails.
