First, knowing what I know about me ( my area of work is OLAP not windows ), that greatly reduces my confidence in whatever else these guys might be posting. Because that is how well they guess :D
Second, these are some of the same people who supported talkstr8t when I was asking him to disclose where he worked for. So much for being impartial.
Third, if this were to continue, I'd definitely ask the mods to intervene. Since, these guys are targeting me with personal attacks and FUD. If you want to just target MS employees, get your own board. Afterall I've been with this board for longer than some of these guys.
Forth, even though I've wondered about leaving these threads, I don't see myself doing that ... I'm not going to be chased away by a few Rush Limbaughs.
Well, that was pretty weak. No wonder that Amir wants to dissuade anyone from communicating with you directly.
Letâ€™s go in order, shall we?
â€œPre-Firstâ€ â€“ Iâ€™m unaware of anyone claiming to have â€œknowledgeâ€ (your term) about you. The comments reflect others impressions of the content, style and volume of your posts, and their similarity of approach to someone else here.
â€œFirstâ€ â€“ I donâ€™t really care what dept. you work for at MS, whether youâ€™re brown-nosing (as someone else suggested) or whether youâ€™ve been assigned or have determined to adopt the role of a surrogate for Amir. As noted above, whatever your intent may be is superfluous to the impressions your posts leave. Interesting that you donâ€™t see such issues being raised about Sspears, another MS employee, who has historically been more active on this subject, than you have.
â€œSecondâ€ â€“ apparently you intentionally donâ€™t want to get this, but as Talkstr8t has pretty much admitted that he has connections to work for the BD side, we donâ€™t really give a damn about who he specifically is or works for. The only ones conducting a witch hunt wrt that info is you and Amir, and for questionable reasons as far as I can tell.
â€œThirdâ€ â€“ IIRC, this isnâ€™t the first time youâ€™ve raised the specter of the moderators in vain, to further some agenda. Its time to grow up. Weâ€™re allowed to question the interests of others in a democracy, in case youâ€™re not aware of that, and trying to fashion that as a â€œpersonal attackâ€ so you can go crying to the mods isnâ€™t going to fool anybody.
BTW, its quite telling that you conveniently ignored the comments about the double standard some folks from MS seem to observe here, particularly when it comes to disclosure of members in their own consulting and promotion groups.
â€œFourthâ€ â€“ You choose to cap off the post with another statement that mirrors the sentiments expressed by Amir here in the past. Priceless. And you want to know why some have drawn certain conclusions from your posts, eh?
Oh, and as far as apologies go, rest assured that "the check is in the mail". :rolleyes:
Chance favors the prepared mind
