Speaking for myself, I did not take offense of your comments and I considered them as I believe they were intended, your opinions. Regardless of whether I agree or disagree with anyone's opinion, I will always support their right to state it. In some regards, I agree that the past thread regarding "Quality Issues in Engineering" rambled on. My personal goal was to see if there were others that shared my opinion on the subject and hopefully translate those opinions and energy into something constructive. Ultimately, I was hoping for a web page on the SEAOC web site that would be a dynamic survey form where data could be collected and delivered to the SEAOC leadership since I believe they do not participate in this listservice as much as design engineers and small business owners do. Unfortunately (from my perspective) this did not happen. A lot of valuable insights were shared, various options were discussed and issues were viewed from several perspectives. However, all of this time and energy has ended up in the Recycle Bin. Since this topic has run its course and I don't see that anything constructive has been achieved, I will stop wasting my time on it. So, you will probably see fewer posts from me. I have to say at this point the only agenda I have had with the thread was that I was hoping to improve the state of the ProfessionAL although SEAOC, UBC and the B&P code appear only to be interested in the profession. To me, the attractive element of a thread (as opposed to a chat room) is that I can respond and read at my convenience. Just like e-mail. A while back, the only way I could get a client to send me a CAD file for example is that he had to be at a computer, I had to be at a computer, we linked together and transferred the file. A huge waste of time. Now, he can send the file at his convenience and I can retrieve it at mine. So, no offense taken, Tom. I would be interested in any opinion you may have.
