Competence, rudeness and abuse


Phil Scott

Jan 1, 1970
Competence and rudeness are inversely proportional.

the most competent tend to be polite, accurate, considerate
and soft spoken...

....the rudest, and most abusive demonstrate the most
ignorance... these are virtually always in the lower income
groups... the most abusive are the drunks... not an impressive
set. Excusable to some degree in youth though...

On that issue, I made a similar posting a few years ago to an
HVAC NG group and was assailed by a small army of guys
choosing to differ with me, stating that they were earning *8
dollars an hour..and that was a full 2 dollars above minimum
wage.. and some bragging about how they had their own cars.

80 dollars an hour was an alien concept to them as was the
notion of high end markets for such skills...these thought
HVAC was placing a cooling appliance in the home.

Did education work in that arena?

nah :)

You knew he was referring to you!!! Your not as stupid as I
thought! Damnit, Roy, there's hope for you yet. Maybe if you
quit blabbering long enough to form a cogent thought, you
might learn something useful.

Roy has a fatal disease... it is that of trashing others in an
effort to support his own error... that not only locks the
error in, but the entire set of mechanisms, hard wired into
the brain that preclude rational thought...

.. that combination chews up the seratonin and dopamine
generators and depletes the brain chemistry while running up
the cortizol levels... I don't wish that ending on anyone.

Thats about like volunteering to soak your brain in draino...
its fatal. Such a person destroys themselves and all they
get close to.

Roys does this to anyone he communicates with, even those he
calls friends. ,,, its the family of a man like that suffers
the most.

There is no change for these types on the horizon until they
hit bottom, by then its most often too late for any repair or

interesting thread. seeing as we're talking skin effect...then we must be
talking about a.c. i hope everybody does realize that the net electron flow
in an a.c circuit is contrast to the electric current...which is
not zero. the electron displacement is probably what is meant.

just my (very polite, unabusive) 2 cents worth,
