Thanks, Doug. Good feedback. I do understand, I think, but it is still frustrating. As I pointed out in the episode, I do not expect others to follow my method. My methods are mine and they work for me. My frustration you heard was not with people who do not follow my teachings, it is with people who do the same things now that they did 20 years ago and - instead of being content with the path they have chosen - find it necessary to say everyone else is WRONG. As I said near the end, just because what you do is different than what I do does not mean what I am doing is wrong.

You are an intelligent guy. I don't understand why it is so hard for you to understand why people feel this way. No, it is not rooted in USPAP or privacy violations, rather that the folks who offer these opinions could not deliver the results that you do even with your method. Not everybody is dynamic. Not everybody is a leader. However, it would not hurt, and there is nothing illegal, about knowing a personal limitation and having the intelligence to see that somebody else could get past that/those limitations and succeed.

This whole episode seemed a little bit Trumpian with a bit of insecurity. You are better than this. Just take the high road.
