called my post "Wrong, rude, and uncalled for".
Wrong? I presume you think "is zero, almost all and almost zero" is
incorrect? Maybe, maybe not, but most of your post, and your
signature, indicates you are in the "almost all" category. Nothing
wrong with this, but let's be honest about it.
Rude? Your skin is even thinner than Tony's.
Uncalled for? Tony made some comments, I thought he was wrong and
responded. How much more "calling" do you want, or are you also
trying to censor the list so that only nice things are said about
Apart from proving that what I wrote is correct, you have
misconstrued my meaning. I was not criticizing designers, nor their
presence on the list. It is great to have them.
My point was that we should not be putting them on a pedstal,in
return for whatever free information we can suck out of them. They
should be (and almost always are) prepared to take the heat if they
are wrong, or their boats have problems, or for not answering list
related questions, as per Richard and Joe. They should also be paid
if they are asked for, and they provide, valuable information.
