There's nothing particularly superior about being a competent engineer and pointing out other people in the same discipline doing shoddy work.
As to who I am, I fail to see how that's relevant. I've made no claims about myself other than the implicit claim of competence. Software I've contributed to includes the Mozilla browser suite, the Linux kernel and GNOME, as well as stuff much less famous like pim6sd and MAD-FLUTE. I've seen plenty of good and bad code in all that time. All my code, including the stuff for which I wasn't paid, was to a proper standard in my opinion and I've seen no complaints from my fellow developers -- not many from nightclub owners either :)
What I do know (from watching these forums) is that using your real name on ANN or anywhere else in "Amiga land" is primarily an opportunity for ad hominem attacks, unwanted intrusions into ones personal life, and even threats of physical violence. So that I won't be doing. If you're not interested in the opinions of someone who is anonymous, simply don't reply to them.
