Mr. Morgan,

On the whole, I think you're pretty good at being able to take a hit and discern points, and because of that I'm going to trust you will consider this point:

"This is the equivalent to walking into a pub, walking up to a
stranger, and asking him to help you with your homework."

I never heard of any of you before this post - I simply found a group and posted a question not knowing if anyone would answer. So, with all due respect (and I'm respecting you more with each post) - the logic and reasoning behind your analogy is seriously lacking. I didn't walk up to any of you - you stopped by after reading my question. I'm a bit a old fashioned, because I believe that if you show up (in any part of life) - represent yourself or don't bother to show up at all. When someone asks for my help - you'll get my best or you'll get nothing (and of course - taking time and technical constraints into consideration).

"Whatever we wish."

That's the clear difference between us, because you think it's about your job, money, deliverables and who "owes" what to whom.

With me it's about who I am, and I don't differentiate between my management and a total stranger. My best is my standard, and it gets better by striving for more (which includes having others challenge that standard and be willing to learn.

I cannot fathom how anyone could make an argument to justify mediocrity, but that's the world we live in. But I don't have to accept it, and if someone shows up in any kind of context and hands me that crap - they're gonna get hammered for it, and I don't care who you are or how many you've genuinely helped before.

Mr. Bakker got exactly what he deserved, and if anything - he got off easy.

I may not live as long as you, but the price I pay will be worth it. I asked for "anybody's" help - you guys are the ones who stepped in and put your name on the line, and I guess I was under the illusion that people would take more pride in representing their skills.

Show up or don't bother, it really is that simple.

Thanks again for your time,


P.S. After all this "senior" talk (not including myself - since I make no such claim) - I'm beginning to wonder if anyone here really knows how to do what I asked about in terms of the bind variables. Wouldn't it have been much more interesting had we actually spent time on that? Received on Mon Mar 06 2006 - 14:40:33 CST
