They did send me that email. They sent it about a month ago. After responding to it... "still want it" etc... they then sent me the estimated delivery date of november 14th.
I ordered it september 14th, as soon as i saw it posted on NR.
Believe me, I did not do anything to get my order canceled intentionally.
This is the email I got today:
