    Re: misunderstandings: was Automatic deviation calculation by electronic compasses
    From: Joel Jacobs

    I've spent quite a bit of time looking at George H's post from all angles trying to arrive at a reasonable response, and I've concluded that only a limited response is best. I will just wonder why, as a highly trained scientist, George could publish something that would not make clear whom he was quoting in the original? Or not tell the us that what Lu Abel was saying was his quoting of George.
    The bottom line is, I've read and re-read his explanation, and still can't figure out who is saying what, in what context, and when. In the second section of Post 11066 George clearly named Frank Reed as the person whom he was quoting as he debated what Frank was saying. Why George didn't do the same in the first section of that post, is mind numbing? If you are finding it difficult to understand this, I will not be surprised. ;-( Please ignore it.
