Re: “Turning Housing into Hotels

Mr. Graham,

I have just spoken with Airbnb to see if your message went through their servers, but somehow did not get to me. They replied as follows: "I have taken a look into all of your conversations on your Airbnb account. I am not seeing anything from August 31st, 2015 that you did not respond to. There may have been a technical error on the guest side where the message was never sent."

Mr. Graham, are you certain your message was sent?

This again underlines the significance of your saying you sent me MESSAGES, not just one, but plural, MESSAGES.

As I asked previously, please advise when else you sent a message, or messages.

Thank you.

Re: “Turning Housing into Hotels

Mr. Graham,

Thank you for posting that pdf. As you may know, Airbnb forwards messages to hosts' email accounts. I have searched my email account on August 31 and, as I expected, no message from you is there. This is odd, because six Airbnb threads are there. Are you sure you clicked the "send" button?

Separately, as I wrote before, you said that I did not reply to your "messages," in the plural, as follows: "As for Blumberg. . . he did not reply to messages I sent to him through Airbnb."

Please advise when you sent the other message(s). It is strange enough that I did not receive one message from you. It would be still stranger if it were more.

Thank you.

Re: “Turning Housing into Hotels

Mr. Bond-Graham:
I am the Elliott Blumberg mentioned in your article. You wrote here that you sent me "messages" (plural) through Airbnb, but that I did not reply. I have never seen a message from you, even after just now doing a thorough search for the name "Darwin." I kindly ask that you post here screenshots of the correspondence you have sent. Since you sent them through Airbnb, the record should be very easy for you to find. Thank you.
