Skills that will equip you for (our own) success, part deux

Apparently Marsha Enright of the “College of the United States” doesn’t like something I said earlier about their upcoming “seminar” for “success”. In brief, she thinks I was wrong, period.

But just to understand how Enright arrived at her thinking, I decided to check out some of her other blog entries. Some summaries:

I’m sure that if you attend their seminar, you’ll also be able to, um, think in a similar way, and soon find yourself on the pathway to “Objectivity!” and “Lifetime Success!” However, you’ll first need to think up US$1,300.

  1. Just found this site. Like interesting, but none of the Web Cite links seem to work. Just an FYI.

  2. Wayne: The web cite links are working for me. Try clicking on the link in the upper righthand section of the page where it indicates “permalink.”

  3. wayne, Grace Nearing:

    The WebCite links were down for a while. I should link to the originals more often…

  4. How are you doing Frank?
    I lurk here every once and awhile…usually after you make a particularly good remark at some other site.
    I’m going off topic here, but I don’t see an open thread. Of course I’ve been known to be blind as a bat…

    I’m sure it was you that has the idea that many members of the “rah-rah” squads on certain sites are merely sockpuppets and are used to pad hit numbers on those sites.
    I tend to believe you’re right.
    A lot of the time when people have nothing to say they take up a lot of space saying it.
    “Rah-rah” comments tend to be hit and run.
    But I’ve got a question for you:
    What do you think the odds are that in a long exchange on a single thread, that multiple people are posing as a single commenter?
    Sorta like shift change at the old think tank?

    Well, still busy, but still fine. 🙂

    No, there’s no open thread here (yet). I wonder if I should create one…

    What do you think the odds are that in a long exchange on a single thread, that multiple people are posing as a single commenter?

    Good question… I don’t know. 😐 I’ve dealt with a case (not really about global warming) where the commenter seemed to have to wait every now and then for someone else to tell him what to say, so it’s possible…

  6. Yeah I’ve noticed that “wait every and now and then” deal.

    Maybe what I think is multiple people is just someone getting their socks mixed up.
    Who knows…

    Anyway, thanks for answering Frank.

    Hahah. I see a market for sockpuppet management courses…

    Anyway, thanks for answering Frank.

    Non problema est. (-:
