Replying to LO6681 -- was: Spirited Debate on LO

I agree with Dixon who advocates 'deed not words'. I've been in academia
for eleven years and the motto I use is DOIT said a little like Homer in
the Simpsons. I do consultancies in the community and there inaction and
reaction are as deadly as in academia especially when it is government
departments I have to deal with. Do it! but think first! because one
more blink and today is gone.


>That's why many of us prefer not to work in academia any longer. It was my
>experience that many of those involved ever got anything done - debate
>after debate after debate, etc. - "deeds not words" should be the motto
>for the day. That is also the reason I recently dropped out of two other
>discussion groups I was in. I really didn't need to hear (read) irrational
