I think you're entitled, more more than the handful of repetitious triflers here, among whom I don't consider you one. For a public free-for-all, it surprises me than only about half of the stuff here is nonsense (at least to me it's only half to me, as they say, the mileage of others will vary up or down). Even if I don't understand your motives, you write earnest stuff and nobody should ever criticize that.

that exposes the typical celko message, appeal to "higher" authority without explaining why it should be respected as being higher. Too lazy or too ignorant to justify why a suggestion stands on its own. most of us are sheep and go along with this.

too drunk to type what i meant to say about this and the rest, it could have been my attempt to distinguish humanism from corporatism, sorry.
