It takes some time to read through this thread, but I find it to be quite cathartic. Throughout, Shifman exhibits a rather impressive degree of stupidity in the face of obviously overwhelming intellectual resources.
I just checked my now-dead me [at] ianbell [dot] com account and he actually SPAMmed me as well. Should I hire him?
If you hate SPAM then he’s a whipping boy of Cantor-esque magnitude. I suggest that we skip straigh to his offer to call him, bypassing the need for pesky emails, and congratulate him for his genius and offer him positions right away.
His number is (for now) 773.391.0595 .. make sure to block your CallerID unless you’re using a PBX. It’s worth the call. I’ve already called 5X!
Pass it on..
