Mislead --> misled
Authored by: E-man on Tuesday, March 04 2008 @ 08:08 PM CST
As if to prove I have no great communication skills, I just wrote the past tense (or past participle?) of mislead as "mislead". It should have been "misled." Sorry.

Sounds to me like you're suffering from some of the same shortcomings Andy suffers from:
   - Early confusion about what happened
   - Lack of full details on the day the BRM ended
   - Lack of complete understanding of the whole BRM/JTC1 process/environment as of the day the BRM ended.
   - Lack of first-hand details behind the big-ballot vote.  Lack of background and context for the big-ballot vote.
   - Lack of having been there
   - Desire to 'get it right the first time'
   - Lack of perfection
   - Personal Integrity
   - Sense of honor
   - Desire to set/keep the record straight both for posterity and as  an accurate reference for others
   - Desire to find out what REALLY happened - as opposed to reading spin after the fact.
   - Embarrassment when you inadvertently mislead people

I don't see where these shortcomings have impacted the Microsoft bloggers.  ...Must be some of the mental handicaps that we open-source supporters work under....

Like me, I suspect you and Andy both would have trouble working for Microsoft.  ;-)
