This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
On this very page we see that you are warned by Mark and the very next post is you using the "Sim Sim" name. When you registered you agreed to follow the javaRanch naming standards which requires you to use your real name or at the very least a name that is not obviously ficticious.

U think that Sim Sim is fictious, It makes sense as you are not form the same place as I am. But why the exaggeration ? There was only 1 warning, I could have missed it and my registraion got cancelled. Thats fine. But why to exaggerate that I got warned 10 times. It seems to me that you thought 'You have been warned once' line would not add weight to your post and you wanted to show some bigger number.

Mark I have reread this thread. I think my evil twin is as tough to foreigners in this thead as he is anywhere on the board.
However, given your hostility to foreigners, I had a feeling you were being less than kind in your words.
Mark would you please point out to me the post which you find to be not nice. I'm intrestest in posts where you think I'm doing something like a personal attack.
Once again, I can't help it if you don't like my opinions.

The issue of supply and demand for programming talent in the US is one the legilature should stay out of. The American free enterprise system is not one where central planning by the legislature is called for. There was never a shortage of programming talent. The industry duped the legislature into giving the industry a subsidy. The legislature needs to end the subsidy and the H1-B's need to go home. The industry has used the subsidy to fatten their pockets at the expense of labor.
If the legislature thinks America needs more programmers, why don't they budget more funding for education? Special interest money has bought access, and access has rewarded special interest.
It's time to end the H1-B program.
My position is that H1-Bs are not able to compete on a fair footing with the domestic work force. When foreign nationals are free to move about the plane without the green card lap belt on then I think I'll join you in grand opening ceremony at the boarding gate.
But the lap belt allows them to buy citizenship in the US. My ancestors bought citizenship in this country bringing down the stars and bars. The blood that runs in my veins has the courage to lead the charge. [ May 17, 2006: Message edited by: Homer Phillips ]
