“Bad People in Guatemala” (posted on 6.17) was about an Airbnb issue that went wrong. Naturally a good portion of the HE commenters dismissed the facts and blamed us for screwing up on some level. Their consideration is/was deeply appreciated.
Airbnb Support support just messaged the following (1:09 pm): “Hi Jeffrey, [name] here again. Sorry for the delayed response as I just got the approval for you. I have issued the refund in full amounting to $194 and you can get the refund timeline here.
“Jeffrey, I am truly grateful to you for choosing us as your travel platform and giving us the opportunity to turn things around for you. If you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
“I hope you have a good day ahead and thanks for being part of our wonderful community here at Airbnb.”
