Well, John, I've challenged Steve to post a copy of any e-mail where I
inquired about work, which of course he could not do, and he hasn't even had
the smarts or guts to forge a copy. This isn't the first time he's made
such a baseless claim.

In words made famous by michka, "I'd rather slide down a giant razor blade
into a vat of iodine than work for Steve." I remember his first posts,
where he was bitching about not getting two days work from someone for
half-a-day's pay... that's not the kind of person you'd want to work for. If
I remember correctly, he didn't pay the guy anything, even though it sounded
as if the guy had completed and sent him exactly what Steve had asked for --
Steve just didn't know enough to specify the work product properly. I'd
sooner switch to eating a cheaper brand of dog food than stoop to working
for Steve, and, despite his claims, I haven't had to switch to even the best
of dog food, yet.

But, in moderated forums, he's going to find his opportunities extremely
limited. So I think we are going to have to be vigilant in CDMA to not let
him get away with it -- I know there are enough "old hands" headed back
there to be all over him like a cheap suit if he tries his tricks there. I
just hope he doesn't flood it with so much spam that people will not come
there to ask questions.

By the way, he plagiarized the "old man / living in past / previous
versions" stuff from the late Don P. Mellon. He doesn't even have enough
imagination and intelligence to create his own insults. But, then, he also
doesn't have enough imagination and intelligence to use anonymizers and such
to beseige a newsgroup, even with Mellon's example, to try to kill it.
Mellon, at least, _sometimes_ got in a pretty good "zinger" that'd make us

Larry is far more competent with Access when he is asleep than stevie is
when stevie is supposedly at the top of his game.

I have yet to see Larry post anything that was a lie, but stevie on the
other hand seems to enjoy wallowing in untruths.
He has claimed to be an engineer, but any qualified engineer knows that
they have standards and ethics to maintain. Stevie kows nothing about
ethics or quality.

So one ZIP code per city? Sounds like some one from small town PA.

Stevie, go back to being a gasoline station attendant.

This post is nothing but sour grapes!!

A few years ago Larry Linson begged me for a job. I turned him down
because he is an arrogant know-it-all and has no scruples about lieing.
He stands on his soap box wanting you to be riveted to everything he says
but he is nothing but an old man living in the past when he used Access95
and previous versions.

Steve Santus has been spamming newsgroups for a good many years.
Regardless of the admonitions that newsgroups are for free assistance,
as this one states; or the admonition that advertising, even of free
stuff, is not permitted, he refuses to follow the rules. Do you want to
subject yourself to the whims of someone who could, but will not, follow
the rules?

Most of Steve's posts are simply flogging his services; but, when he
does attempt to answer questions, his correct answers are so few and far
between that capable, experienced Access developers who answer questions
here for free have said "no rates can be reasonable _enough_ to pay for
wrong answers".

But, poor Steve's claimed thousands of satisfied clients don't seem to
be enough. I doubt that is because he permanently solved their problems
or educated them enough that they no longer ever need any help. So,
Steve must take advantage of the last day or two to appeal for work Yet
Again, here in the dying newsgroup.

I wish Steve well, but I wouldn't wish him _on_ any users of this
