(Yawns) Once again, the defensive fury when someone asks a question.
Please, could you tell me how he was deciding the manner in which
someone could spend their time? Was he going to assign all developers a
task plan? Was he going to physically bar access to a computer until
such time as we followed his plan? Was he going to declare himself
emporer of the project and force his will by fiat? He *asked a frickin'
question!!!!* This is a rhetorical device employed to make people
examine the issue and *decide for themselves* whether there's merit in
the question raised. How are you in a position to tell him what
questions he might ask or opinions he might hold? People involved in a
project like this do occasionally need to ask themselves what their
goals are and whether their activities are furthering those goals. This
internal examination is not a bad thing. Period.
