hey 'nuh :) i'm really not trying to get into it(which you know), but some people may not think the discussion about #evolt is *as* important as say, taking survey results and putting them into plans. some people do. everyone here probably has a slightly different opinion on where tasks at hand for evolt fall into place in terms of importantcy, and thats cool. it's an opinion that everyones entitled too, just like if a person were to think that a discussion about #evolt is more important than the survey stuff. again, its opinion.. i'm not saying how mich opened her email was good/bad/whatever.. maybe with all the tenseness theres some over-analyzing going on, or maybe michele meant to say that she thinks the work on #evolt is less important than baking cookies, or maybe she didn't mean anything.. but thats *my* opinion, if all those maybes count as an opinion ;) hope the job search goes well .djc.
