I believe that there are some legal reasons that we should not discuss
these issues in this forum or via any electronic medium. There's too
much potential for litigation, and we could all be opening ourselves up
to potential for lawsuits. That's the last thing I need to add to my
overly-crowded plate, and I'm sure you're in the same position.

		You know folks.  I am beginning to think we have the
title wrong.  We need a people-person with technology skills and if we
played our cards right and worked with a few technical vender folks, we
could probably do a lot better.  Jack Lundy

		The idea of a lousy technologist blacklist may have some
merit.

			Gail, 

			You have my commiseration on this. I am now on
Technologist #3 in 9 months. At least this time our technologist seems
to be a good one. Funny thing is that we passed him by twice and hired
two qualified but ultimately inappropriate people beforehand. If you
email me directly, I'll give you their names so you don't make the same
mistake we did!
