RE: Secure Document Desi J Kiss

Many of us (unfortunately yours truly included) are wimps or just apathetic 
 and are afraid of the (perceived or real) repercussions from "standing 
strong".  Humans in general seem to be fine and upright until there is a 
perceived threat to the (apparent) status quo ... was it Socrates or Plato 
who said, "if you wish to be philosophical (altruistic?), make sure you have 
 an independent income" ... and that's the bottom line ... i.e. have nothing 
 to lose ...

That said, I am impressed and in a state of admiration for Hassan's pursuit 
 of this current problem ... maybe the itch will cause something to be 
scratched ...

Dear Richard
I noticed the following quote at the bottom of your email and found it very 

"Be brave enough to stand up for what is right, although it  may not be 
popular or easy, and even if you stand alone".  Anonymous

In your experience what percentage of structural engineers would follow
this quote?  And what are the reasons we don't all follow it ?   Anyone
else would like to comment?
