There is a distinct difference, sometimes, between what is perceived as "injurious," and what is real injury. In my case, I am a private citizen, not representing my company in any way, shape or form (hell, we ALL know we could be working for someone ELSE next week!) I am entitled to my opinion, and even entitled to express it publicly. RE know this, but they figured the bluff is worth at least the price of a stamp. I am not out to defame them in any way. There is much about their structural analysis and design product that is commendable. But they OUGHT to be addressing the problems in their product, which problems are real and of concern to their more discriminating users, instead of addressing threatening letters to their customers! That's just not good business! FWIW, we did not receive any follow-up from them. They have our money, we have their product, however imperfect. I guess it's a devil's bargain. --- Internet Message Header Follows --- Received: from server1.seaoc.org (bqe.com [22.214.171.124]) by host1.texramp.net (8.8.5/8.8.5) with SMTP id QAA02016 for <rlewis(--nospam--at)techteam.org>; Sun, 23 Mar 1997 16:25:05 -0600 (CST) Received: from nexus.flash.net by server1.seaoc.org (NTList 3.02.10) id ua010550; Sun, 23 Mar 1997 14:18:57 -0800 Received: from poly.flash.net (hsh9-67.flash.net [126.96.36.199]) by flash.net (8.8.5/8.7.5) with SMTP id QAA05655 for <seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org>; Sun, 23 Mar 1997 16:17:03 -0600 (CST) From: poly(--nospam--at)flash.net (Bill Polhemus) Newsgroups: SEAOC.Mailing.List To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Subject: Re: GOOD STRUCTURAL PROGRAMS Date: Sun, 23 Mar 1997 16:09:32 -0600 Organization: Chez Polhemus, Katy, Texas, USA Reply-To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Message-ID: <coaNzQQU/MJT090yn(--nospam--at)flash.net> References: <970323163117_1949842071(--nospam--at)emout18.mail.aol.com> Lines: 36 Error-To: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-Loop: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-Info: [SEAOC] Owner: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-POP3-Rcpt: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-Sender: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Precedence: list X-ListMember: rlewis(--nospam--at)techteam.org [seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org] __________________________________________________ Richard Lewis, P.E.
