  1. Norman, appreciate your significant contributions.  And while the views are great, when I look at how many stop to contribute feedback (2-3 on averrage) I wonder why that is? 

     

  1. First, let me thank you for your gracious comment. Your point on the absence of comments is excellent - and frustrating. I share a link on various LinkedIn groups, but people want to comment there instead of where the post was made. I wish I could get everyone together so all could see all the comments and join in the discussion.
