Hi Ken, in truth, I don't think I'm dealing with a person who is
closed-minded, and neither am I dealing with someone who manages by
intimidation. In the past, I certainly have encountered people who fit in
those categories.

Instead, I am dealing with an expert trainer who is so knowledgeable that
they gradually accumulated answers to questions into documents and
eventually built informative Web sites. They needed assistence a while ago,
and it took some time to open reqs in order to get that assistance.

So, I'm dealing with a person who, as far as I know, is rather burnt out.
Imagine finally getting much-needed help, and then realizing that your new
helpers all need a bit of guidance as they get to know systems and
procedures.

Siad person has an eye for quality in some areas, which I appreciate, and
has a good education from a country that includes proficiency in English. I
actually think that the mention of "Layouting" as an archaic word is quite
useful. I've discovered archaic usage of English words in Hong Kong and
Beijing. It would make sense to me that a person educated in Europe and
living in Canada might also have learned usage that differs from USA
English.
