Sorry, Bruce, but it never crossed my mind.

Well, that's one person, anyway. Thanks for that ;-)

I work at Avaya. Would someone who knows the telecom market
automatically assume that I am violently anti-Nortel?

No, but, as I suspect you know, the relation Linux and Microsoft is very different than that between Avaya and Nortel.

In your case, people might assume that you are pleased at Nortel's difficulties in the past year. Or, if Avaya happens to be known for a paticular corporate culture (I know almost nothing about it. so this is just a random example), they might assume that you prefer to do things the Avaya way.

The fact that you are indifferent to these issues - which, incidentally, strikes me as a sensible position to take - doesn't mean that other people won't assume that you have strong opinions on them. It's a nuisance, but it's also a reality that can affect you no matter how much you ignore it.

"Humpty Dumpty was pushed: head over heels all over the wall,
Humpty Dumpty was pushed: nobody noticed at all,
And all the king's horses and all the king's men
Gathered round Humpty and kicked him again;
And they called for a priest and a couple of friends,
And they all stood around and chanted, Amen."
-Tommy Sands, "Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed
