Jay, I read and re-read the starting paragraph of your e-mail response and I owe you an apology. I've been trying to make this information available to the professional community for quite a few years now - as you well know. When you finally send a statement exhibiting a gracious willingness to work with the professional community, I just did not recognize the well intention and responded defensively. I simply misinterpreted your comments and for this I humbly apologize to you and to REACH. I'll hold my apology to SEAOC until which point that they can put me in my place by making the work of the Seismology Committee available and provide us with as magnanimous an offer. I hope you will accept my apologies and stay with us on the list. You can also count on my help to insure that the word gets out and that there is a definitive link to all the important information and resources to make sure that the professional community's opinions and suggestions are heard. Respectfully, Dennis S. Wish, PE The Structuralist Administrator for: http://www.structuralist.net <http://www.structuralist.net> AEC-Residential Listservice admin(--nospam--at)structuralist.net (208) 361-5447 E-Fax ICQ # 95561393 -----Original Message----- From: owner-aec-residential(--nospam--at)polhemus.cc [mailto:owner-aec-residential(--nospam--at)polhemus.cc]On Behalf Of Jay Crandell Sent: Thursday, December 07, 2000 12:08 PM To: aec-residential(--nospam--at)polhemus.cc Subject: RE: [AEC-Residential] Perforated Shearwalls - Response to Jay Crandell's Comments Dennis, You are your own worst enemy in meeting what you say are the needs. Have I denied you an opportunity to participate in review of our work because you are not paying dues to REACH? No. I was reaching out to your group in an offer to share future work and to get feedback from design practitioners on issues of importance with NO STRINGS ATTACHED!!!! Instead, I get a pretty disgraceful response. I too am a practitioner and I value the feedback from other practitioners. I have heard the complaints from practitioners and builders alike and these get woven into our research objectives that follow (without wavering or exception) the ideals of SCIENTIFIC METHOD and very practical applications of it. (Our work is open to criticism, and if you have substantive issues -- which none have been raised -- with our work I will do what is necessary to address them in keeping with adhering to scientific method and objectivity). Neither I nor the Reseach Center nor NAHB has absolutely any need to create some self-proclaimed group of designers (i.e. REACH) for the simple purpose of making it look like we or somebody esle has credibiltiy. Your continual seeking for an ulterior motive in our existence, purpose, and motives in conducting research for the benefit of the design community AND builders AND homebuyers has reached the last straw. Please remove me from the structurallist (or I can do so myself if I can find the directions). I have no time or need of such continual B.S and dominance and slander which interfers with other more productive e-mail communication. I regret that it has come to this, but it has. I will continue to work for the common good, but it will be communicated to those in the practicing community and eslewhere who have an appreciation for it's intrinsic value, and not get hung up on stereotypes or superficialities. It will also be to those who appreciate that work of good value comes at a cost. If anyone on the list wishes to contact me personally regarding are work and to obtain research reports, I can be reached at jcrandell(--nospam--at)nahbrc.org or log on to our website at www.nahbrc.org. Signing off, Jay
