Re: MOS down - Message to Chris Warticki
Date: Thu, 4 Feb 2010 11:14:55 -0600
It is my personal experience that Mr. Warticki often has an overly-optimistic perspective, even in private email conversations. In contrast, my communications with Richard Miller, John John E. So and Cheryl Baggitt have been quite satisfying. Not always fruitful, but at least they take the time to listen and assume I know what I am talking about. They understand constructive criticism and listen well. In my opinion.
Richard has posted a few articles on the "other" support blog ( http://blogs.oracle.com/supportportal/). The last few he put up were over a year in the coming (Parts 1 through 3 - still waiting for part 4 "This is what we have accomplished to date"). *grin*
