I'm not sure about us over engineering something, perhaps we might, but we sure as heck would test it!<quoted text>I believe he's some sort of engineer, he's too pedantic to be anything else.
His inability to check things out before getting involved in arguments
If (gawd forbid) we ever met, between us, we'd over engineer anything.
I've qualified (loosely) as an engineer since age 19, but I didn't specialise in any one particular field of engineering for long, but I did learn to check facts before getting involved in an argument.
To tell you the truth LessHypeMoreFact sounds like a retired business process engineer, but that is just a guess. I say retired, because he has lots of time on his hands and appears to be old enough not to understand what information is available on the web (although, I might be confusing that with lazy) and I say business process engineer because they have engineer in their title but do not need an engineering degree and my experience with them has been that they often pretend to have a technical understanding of a subject, when in reality they have a mere superficial overview. There job is to make changes to existing processes that fit their bosses predetermined ideas of how things are supposed to work and sell it to the other business process owners. They are well schooled in using emotional pleas and gamesmanship to counter facts and logic would undermine their conclusions. They are not in positions of leadership or ever held accountable for actual results. In other words they are the emotional politicians of the business world.
