I agree with your point above completely -- which is why I'm having problems with those on this list bashing a proposed option here while still admitted they have nothing to base in on scientifically....

I don't think "THIS IS IT",  even though I work for that same company. I just don't like the idea of engineers admitting they are using flawed and incomplete data when taking a position (the list email archive proves this to be true)....
