The development community has several issues with Sid which need not be discussed here. The development/user community has 3 basic issues with the man.
1) He posts his natterings one sentence at a time. He is not thoughtful or respectful enough to post his thoughts in 2 or 3 threads, like everyone else, but insists on hijacking an entire forum with multiple, de minimis, thoughts about very little. He hijacks forums for no other purpose than to appear more important. See, eg, Halsey's comments.
2) He claims secret access to developers in order to appear more important. All he does is send 5 emails a day to Joe. And Joe doesn't answer, but that still qualifies as communication. In the AE world, the different Team Leads worked on this and that and Joe doesn't know squat about what went down, because he trusted us to do it right. So communicating with Joe don't signify, because one must communicate with Don/Me, Ian/Tom/Michael, Andy/Joel/James, to know what's going on, and none of us will communicate with Sid.
3) He makes bizarre claims to military knowledge and competence. Basically, he lies about his military service in order to seem more important. This is particularly distasteful to me and to many of the veterans and serving members of the Babes group.
So long as Sid comports with normal useage, we have no issues with him. As to 2), we will occasionally chime in, when he gets too outrageous. As to 3), we will do everything in our power to bring him before a Federal Court the next time he tries to play that card.
And that's it. The man acts normal, no worries. No lies, no hassles.
