Gentlemen (please don't make me regret using this term),
Since this has been brought into the arena of the list, I feel the need to
First....Mike, I personally wouldn't want to interview with you if you are
willing to make such broad judgements about someone from reading rather
sterile email postings. Second.....I agree with Glen (at least on this
point), that Mike's remarks and name-calling were inappropriate (but at
least he had the good sense to initially send them off-list).
Third.....Glen, did this really need to be dragged into the forum of the
entire list? Personally, I simply would have ignored Mike's remarks,
deeming them unworthy of a response. However, I do recognize your right to
respond to his remarks as you see fit.
Let's not let this get ugly......please.......
