More like Microsoftian issues with small minded users. I worked for a
department that switched from conversational quoting to top posting,
and we took a pretty nice efficiency hit from having to backtrack
awkwardly since all of us on the team were active in about 50 or so
threads at any given time.
Stuff like that makes me think I'm better off now driving a truck.
Pays about the same as a decent, call-center and outsource-free
environment either way...
