I'm surprised, after all the time you've spent ... you don't understand...

All the time that your country has spent in Iraq, I'm surprised you don't understand how to read this.

My Favorite Quote for 2005

"It is hard to imagine that someone who has looked as closely at our system as you have would not have been able to figure out . . ."


Let us apply this standard to the great Bob Wyman

Normally when people say something, they generally have some credibility. You know, their actions match the standards they impose on others.

Does this apply to Bob, or does he imply others have to meet a standard that he, himself, cannot meet?

Let us consider the evidence.

Comment One [1]

Wow. In marketing condos, I am now turning to the internet. This whole blogging thing is a new world indeed.

Comment Two [2]

I have also added my own blog to blogspot to try and market condos.

What's interesting is that he now allows comments by people promoting their website, left there for three [3] whole days. OMG!

Is it possible that Bob has promulgated a standard of performance, comprehension that he is unable or unwilling to satisfy?

It appears so, which raises a number of substantive issues regarding the person who made the quote above in the
Gold Box
, inter alia:

After all the time you spent,
Bob you don't understand what is in your own blog?

  • Relevancy: Is that comment spam?

  • Time Limit: How long will it remain?

  • Decision criteria: Will Bob delete it?

  • Communication: Does Bob monitor his blog, or has he given up?

  • Promotion: Is that a link that is unrelated to XML and blogs in Bob Wyman's blog?

  • Commercial: Is someone using Bob Wyman's blog to promote a commercial product?

  • Standards enforcement: Bob, why do you let people post commercial links that promote their sites, but you delete comments related to the subject matter, in this case "blogs" and "how to improve them"?

  • Stability: Why the inconsistency or is this a double standard you apply in arbitrary situations without warning?

  • Discern information quality: Bob, are you not able to figure out your own blog and whether a comment is "off topic" or "on topic"?

  • Responsiveness: Bob, are you there...?

  • Comprehension: PubSub ... Bob Wyman. Do they understand simple things?

  • Task duration: After all the time you spent learning about computers, do you have a hard time understanding what is in your own blog; or is it too hard to figure out?

  • Task Difficulty: If not able to understand something as simple as a blog, how can they be expected to handle something complicated?


  • What's the problem, PubSub and Bob Wyman?

    Stay tuned. This one is going to be good.


    Tsunami Warning: Bob Wyman Makes A Flawed Assumption

    While we await Bob' excuse... read about another oversight Bob and his friends are making about the "big plan" to save the world from another Tsunami.

    The people most likely to be affected and remain at risk...have no access to the XML feeds Bob and his friends propose as "the solution" to save them ...

    Doh!

    Indeed, they propose "their XML solution" can be made in one month. Too bad, it will solve the wrong problem for the wrong people. Never enough time to do it right, but plenty of time to do it over?

    Tsunamis don't wait for the beta-test results, Bob.

    All the time that your country has spent in Iraq, I'm surprised you don't understand how to read this.
