I was thinking about the office the other day and being a gubberment orifice, we have all kinds of "types".

In a gubberment orifice, you constantly live in fear of offending a particular "protected species" (457 at last count).

In the office and here on Epic ... so we don't offend or ailenate or dis-empower or dis-enfranchise any of the "stakeholders" .... we should all have a sign or series of codes that define exactly the appropriate parameters of social, political, social, ethnic comments (etc.) that may be expressed.

Face it, we are a "diverse" culture here and there are just too many entities for me to keep track of .... PSIA, SAM, PMS .... Publicans and Anarchists .. ACLU'ers and Bears oh my!

The issue with branding people is that it grants us a shortcut to stereotyping: "Oh, ssh is a PSIA guy, therefore he must think that all skiers should learn a wedge progression." That's the downside.

Given the tone around here lately, I fear the former would be more commonly applied...

I am the registered owner of the JR brand, if anyone wants to be branded. It's a horse brand though, so please put on a long face for the inspector.

I agree with ssh.

I am easily stereotyped. When it's difficult to stereotype me, people have tried very hard to do so, by asking me certain questions that would categorize me. It's not a good thing, one cannot judge a book by its cover, and all that!

I am married Yuki, which is like branding but more painful and permanent. Once is enough, thank you very much.
