Oh Bill,
I don't want to respond to your comment and I don't want to comment on your engineering dirty laundry list of the past, but I would like to say that I don't attack anybody because of differing opinion.
My comments were directed to one certain individual who, for at least the past ten years, has been making lame comments and injecting politics and his personal views to serious engineering inquiries, sometimes even making fun at the person posting the question.
You yourself had several encounters with him on his inappropriate posts in the past.
Just recently, you made a similar attack on Christopher Wright and called him an a**hole on this list. I don't see his contribution any more. Is it coinsidence? I don't know. So, you had your share of insulting a fellow engineer on the list who, unlike Bill, has never made a negative comment about anybody.
Like Chuck said, I had a better opinion of you.
That's all I have to say.

That wasn't appropriate. A simple engineering question should not be used as an opportunity for a personal attack. And this is why we should not be discussing race, religion, or politics here. It leads to a lot of bad feeling and diminishes the value of this site. I expect this stuff from Bill P. but I had a better opinion of you.
Chuck Utzman, P.E.
