I agree completely. As most people here probably know, I will be one
of the first one's to call Ken (or anyone else) out when I think he is
wrong. However, Ken started this list and Ken maintains it. If it is
his right to kick us out if he wants to. And, what Ron said was
legitimately worthy of moderation. There may have been another way to
handle it, but it was up to Ken to make a snap decision and he made
it. Hopefully we can now move on and go back to talking about Scrum
Hi Paul, I like Ron s attitude - it fits the context. Re- My - People who know me know I care about words (as well as the ideas in Scrum, Agile, etc.) My ,Message 49 of 49 , Nov 7, 2009View SourceHi Paul,
I like Ron's attitude - it fits the context.
Re- 'My' -
People who know me know I care about words
(as well as the ideas in Scrum, Agile, etc.)
'My', in your list, I see as falling into two contexts.
1. My - as part of you and only you - the first 3 or 4.
2. My - as you participate in along with others,
the rest of the list.
Some of these you own.
Some you can take pride in and perhaps defend.
And then there's My universe,
Is "The universe" is more appropriate? :-)
