This post was so bad that, I think, nobody took
it seriously. The guy appears to have had a very lousy day. I am pretty sure he regrets every word now - but here is no
"undo" command here...

Hey, you bastards don't call names. That's my opinion and I
didn't call you names. Actually I'm just talking about plan
checkers that does not even know how to plan check or does not even do the
plan checking. You only spend a couple of hours to plan check
a medium size residence by comparing the results on the calculations
with that of the framing plans. Most of the plan checkers are doing their
job very well but what piss me off are those that will not
spend time to review the drawings and the calcs and then approved the
drawings like there are no errors at all. I know that I should get
most of the responsibility plan but checkers should also their part as
well. If, as I said before, the plan checkers don't have a degree
of responsibility then they will just approve the drawings without plan
checking it. Checking the most critical portion of the project or just
minor things so that there is a chance for the drawings to comeback is
good enough for me . There are times that you need to submit
about 90% of the drawings done because of time constraint and almost
everybody is doing that. There are engineers that are worse by
submitting half done. So what I need is just a some plan checking on
the part of plan checker. Is that asking too much?
I cnould not believe ehat I 've just read!
To say the least, you are completely out of order.
You should not be in responsible charge of any project, including
stamping and signing it. You are not a P.E. in the true sense of the word, but
you are, in my opinion a disgrace to the engineers profession!
