FW: The failings of (engineering) organizations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If this is the discussion you were referring to then the person who you were
referring to was Chris Wright and not me. As I said, I did not read the
original post - I came on board after Bob Johnson's post of Rob Sanchez's
article. However, I would say that just from the inserts in Chris Wright's
reply to you that your comments were as defaming as you claimed were used
against you. While I was not the person you were arguing with, it is not in
my character to criticize anyone for spelling or grammatical errors since I
am equivalently flawed in most cases - especially when upset or frustrated.
Still, this does not diminish your implied expletives and suggestion as to
where the other party might visit :>)

At least, you owe me an apology for impugning me to the list by accusations
made by another. While you're at it, you might calm down and do as the
others suggested - consider a disagreement or discussion as one with dignity
and intelligence should - without anger. Again, this is something that
challenges all of us, myself included.

You're mistaken. We don't have a titled nobility, but we do have 
definite economic boundaries which make up our class system. IF your 
family is rich and influential you can beat any rap that would land a 
poor man in the slammer. And we do have significant remains of a very 
definite class system based on race, religion and gender. It's not like 
it was in the 50's, but it still hangs around. You don't sound like 
you're old enough to remember that. Too bad.

You really ought to take a class in English composition. I'd certainly 
discriminate against anyone writing a letter with all those spelling 
and grammatical errors if you wrote it to me, because I tend to think, 
perhaps unfairly, it reflects ignorance, rather than carelessness.

BTW, capitalism has nothing to do with profits. It only means that the 
means of production are in private hands. People make lots of money, by 
fair means and foul in any economic system.
