    Hi Jerry,

    Sorry to disagree, but... You usually get facts as they exist in the poster's world.

    What you don't get is the entire context within which those facts exist, i.e. the education and experience of the individual, an insight into his practices and procedures, and quantitative evaluations of the accuracy of the measurements involved.

    In short, you get a snapshot of a very complex environment.

    You left out the most important variables; emotion, personality, and mood.

    These factors make preferences too personal to be of real value to others.

    IMO threads like this are inspired by the belief in magic bullets.

    There are no magic bullets available off the shelf any more than there is a way you could tell me what I want to be "when I grow up".

    Leigh, Mark,

    Agree with both your comments.
