    Just because R&D and development is usually calculated as a "loss" w.r.t. taxes - often to get a tax reduction - does not mean that this "loss" will not result in a highly successful finished product.  


    So.... like Hollywood accounting?

  • Erin Roberts Interview Uncut

    All I can do is copy-paste the same response, already discussed the points both ways, there's nothing more to say but that I disagree with you and you disagree with me, we are not talking about a matter of fact.

    I have to admit I am confused, when you keep saying this I do not know if you think we are talking about opinions regarding Erin or something else. I'm talking about the something else which is something we haven't discussed, we haven't disagreed on and there are no matters of fact.

    MaxBacon said:
    Your last bit is fun, when I left Frontier I got many PMs and it was fun to see that people who savagely shut me down in the forum would only privately said they usually agreed with what I said, fun times. And for me there are quite bad things, problem we can't discuss it because the hyperbole and trolling that drives this forum polarizes things, so I have those discussions within our SC org.
    I already stated and explained my opinion of it, you are free to disagree. You have your opinion, I disagree and think you are wrong.

    If you don't care what I or others think why do you spend so much time trying to tell people they're wrong and/or defending your opinion?

    That makes zero sense.
    I already stated and explained my opinion of it, you are free to disagree. You have your opinion, I disagree and think you are wrong.

    If you want to go any further and keep engaging me in a loop just to get this thread with 100 pages, why not?
