I still visit Inspection News regularly although my posting has become more sporadic over the last year as the ratio of technical or fun topics has sadly diminished in favor of the contentious, unpleasant organization bashing. It has, sadly, become a less friendly place to hang out and I can?t help but notice that some of the ?old-timers? whose knowledge I really valued no longer, or very rarely, post.
The same handful of ?gentlemen? seem to always start the threads Ed refers to, while another very small group cause them to continue ad nauseum. By now I?m well aware of the very fixed views of these ?usual suspects? and am positive that nothing other than total agreement will appease them.
I?m not one for bashing my head against a brick wall, so I refuse to participate. But, please don?t take my absence from those threads as consensus, surrender, or even apathy. It?s really simply boredom. To paraphrase Monty Python; saying ?yes it is?, ?no it?s not? is
an argument, but it?s neither constructive or very entertaining. I would rather stick to the technical forums or have a little fun in the friendlier chat topics. While I won?t speak for others, I suspect many here feel the same way.
