I am an attorney and had a request for a type of legal services that I do not provide. I declined the request several days ago but the customer has now sent a follow-up message with a question. I have 2 separate questions/suggestions: 1. Is there a way to "un-decline"? At this point, I don't know that I'd pay for the lead just to respond to the customer's question but I don't like the idea that a question is sitting out there without any ability to address it. The customer may think I am ignoring them. 2. Has there been any thought given to allowing a short explanation when declining a request? I understand this could circumvent the "pay for contact" model but I have to decline far more leads than I reply to for reasons that, if a customer knew, could help them re-submit their request or take other steps to increase the likelihood of response (including from me).
