The deafening silence always makes me a little nervous...

Guilty conscience?  Afraid of the dark, too?  Cheesy 

Just concerned that I might have gone too deep - too far - too much, too fast.  Typically people just leave when I do that and don't bother saying, "Whoa - hold on there."  I'd rather hear "Hold up!" than nothing at all.
I begin to wonder if I have lost people with my words or possibly bored them to death.

A statistical improbability, Dr. Science!

Actually Merl, you haven't lost me, and I don't mean to blow you off.  Just real busy.  SO busy, that I shouldn't even be caught posting now. :-)     Phone's ringing....

I hear you...  I tend to do most of my posting during phone conferences (I have a lot of them).  We are living in a day and age where decision by committee is paramount and everyone wants to "discuss" before refusing to take a position on a subject for fear that they may ultimately be held responsible.  It makes me laugh most of the time - I have 135 people trying to avoid taking responsibility when things get tough and the same number claiming credit when we are ultimately successful.  Anymore - I just post or chat during [the endless] meetings, ignore the conference discussion, and do what I do best when they have all left for the day - achieve results.  I share the credit so no one's ever the wiser to my tactics. 

Talk to you soon.
