Fw: Broken Sigg Bottle Top - repeated emails sent and no reply :-(

Here are two emails I sent back in April hoping to receive a replacement for the bottle cap that my daughter bought which broke right away on its second use.  I am dismayed by the lack of response we have received.  This is just a child who doesn't have a lot of money to burn - she chose a Sigg bottle as a gift and was almost immediately disappointed. 
 
Six months have gone by, and the bottle is still sitting gathering dust on a shelf.  What a waste, for a company that's made its reputation on its "green" products.
 
I would appreciate a reply - a replacement bottle top would be even better.

I am forwarding this (see email, below) to you in the hope that you can help us, as I haven't heard back from the Sigg contact within Canada.
 
Thanks in advance!

Subject: Broken Bottle Top

After months of trying to decide whether we wanted Sigg or Kleen Kanteen bottles, my daughter received a lovely cobalt-blue Sigg bottle with an Active Bottle Top.  Unfortunately, the second time she used it, the "flap cap" on the bottle top just snapped off.  To my knowledge, it wasn't subjected to any unusual stress; it just broke off as she opened it (maybe opening it too far?  but if that's the case, the cap is just plain flimsy).
 
I'd like to request a replacement bottle top, and would be happy to return this one wherever necessary.  The store where it was purchased (Li'l Niblets & Baby Sprouts on Avenue Road in Toronto, approximately in November, but there hasn't been much call for cold-water bottles in the last few months... :-)) didn't have any exchange information.
 
Yours truly,

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
