Bending the rules, but not far enough?

Im not sure if this is a bug or just a lack of talent on the part of my detective but, after I had the Shoe Maker clam up on me after trying to check an Alibi, I used my chance at rule bending and got this message:

"Milton decided to be more cooperative and answer more questions..

At that, he clammed up quick.
He'd had enough of my questions, unless there was something I could do to convince him to be more cooperative."

According to the first part of that message, I succeeded. However, his cooperation appears to be more clamming up. Is this guy just a no good jerk who's giving me the high hat, or do I have a legitimate complaint here?

I have found that this can happen if you double click when asking a question. It appears that if you do you ask the same quetion twice but dont get the answer from the first time

Hmmm, I suppose theres a small chance that might have happened. Fortunately it didn't end up affecting my case. Thanks for the info!

You know this occasionally has happened to me and I always blame it on my mouse and funky refresh.

It could very well be the refresh that caused it. It's the same thing that caused your double post up there ^

Hanz, I see you belong to an agency. Did someone in the agency who has the Shoemaker contact already talk to him?

I've had this problem before and posted about it - several wonderful Sleuths came to my rescue.

It doesn't sound like you double clicked, because you got both messages on the same page.

1. "Milton decided to be more cooperative and answer more questions..

2. At that, he clammed up quick.

If you double clicked I would assume you would get still be able to see if the alibi was fake or real in the case file.

I think it may have happened to me but its very rare.

Rule Bending is a Charm type skill you can get with enough skill points. The "double-click" thing everyone is talking about is just a mistake that can happen sometimes that may mess up your questioning.
