I believe that you feel this way because you do not agree with me. This is the only logical reason I can see for you to publicly attack me in such an unprofessional manner. This is not a topic of the politics of NAFTA and GATT, but rather a topic of how these treaties are and will affect the structural engineering job market. I feel justified in stating my beliefs which are the types of discussions that this list promotes. I have not received messages from others (private or public) that suggests I have overstepped my bounds by "pontificating [my] personal opinion". Nor have I received email suggesting that this topic was inappropriate for our list. I have received responses from those who do not agree with me. With the exception of your comments, the others have addressed the topic with professionalism and with respect for my opinions as I hope to have responded to their comments. We need not agree on every topic, but I respect the others viewpoints and would even consider changing my position if I can be convinced that I am wrong. Let me remind you that I did not start this thread and inserted my opinion some days after the discussion gained steam. This did not stop you from participating on three or more occasions and I did not attempt to censure you nor did I try to negate your personal opinions or suggest that if you differed from my opinion you could leave the country. If you care to complain, you are free to do so by submitting your request to admin(--nospam--at)seaint.org. If the list administrator chooses to end this discussion, I will abide but I won't be dictated to by you simply because you wish to silence any voice that does not agree with you. I suggest you take your complaints, personal attacks and insults elsewhere or delete the thread. I've believe I have been courteous and apologetic to those whom I've disagreed with in an effort to avoid misconstrued bias and prejudice because of my opinions - I have never intended to make this a cultural issue nor would I ever purposely offend anyone on this list (except in defense as was your case).

Very little content of your participation in this thread has anything to do with structural engineering. This thread got started by one firm from India advertising for work, which we on the list have previously voted to allow. Using the list to transgress this thread into voicing your viewpoints about NAFTA and GANTT as your personal soap box is irresponsible IMO. Please, try to focus your contributions to the field of structural engineering. You have plenty of valuable and informative viewpoints on this subject which even I appreciate. You should be aware by now that every thread that becomes primarily political in nature digresses into totally non-productive, high volume and low content babble.

You don't need to respond - I prefer you simply filter me to your trash bin - I intend to do the same to you. Dennis
