You should command respect, not demanding it. How and what you act command the respect from your compatriot and not demanding it just because you are the distributor. Please has some business ethic to be in this business.Try negotiation rather then intimidation without substances next time.

In a free market, the only rule I know is to earn the respect from your competitors and your customers. Mcgill had always been very well resepcted as a major telescope importer, dealer, distributor here in Singapore, until your intimidating message, which reflect you as being, putting it bluntly, a tactless, intolerant dealer.
I understand where you come from, but if the message is as such below, it serves the same purpose to diseminate the information rather then intimidation :
