Poor communication skils?
But maybe not mine, for once. An email response I received this morning (my mail is quoted in his response):
No. Why cant you fix the alert?

My response was in fairly good taste considering:

Hi,

I am trying to foster good relations and communication between tech and dev and your 
response made me so angry I could spit. The remainder of this discussion, however 
fruitless, will have to wait until I have calmed down a bit.

Have a lovely day,

I'd probably have just silently reported them to a higher authority and had them deal with the idjit.

Hmm

Available higher authorities already know this guy is a jerk, and one of them is one too and likes him, so ... I mentioned it to my manager, fwiw.

And today we're exchanging mails about the problems ... but I have little hope of anything improving. Of course that's generally true of me.

When asked by an intrepid white reporter what he thought of Western civilisation, Mohandas K. 'Mahatma' Gandhi is reported to have said, "I think it would be a good idea."
