Doug, you seem determined to make this unpleasant and I am sorry that has happened.
You wanted me to sort out all the payments and as you must know debit cards and credit cards cost money to process, as do Paypal payments and some bank transfers. You also expected me to carry any slack from minor cock ups that occurred along the way. The 4% "profit" you describe would not have begun to cover this, but I was reluctant to subsidise the course. It would probably have cost me a couple of quid, not much but I could not justify it.
As for the free place, that was your suggestion and certainly not something I asked for.
