It took a while - but I apparently finally got the attention of one 'Jeffrey Pinheiro' AKA 'The Revit Kid' AKA 'The Revit Faggot'.
I re-posted his comments (with my responses) below:
"First, thanks for the post and the traffic my way!" (No problem faggot).
"I will have
you know that I have been using Revit professionally (as in, to create
REAL WORLD BUILDINGS that HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTED) for over five years.
Long before you started posting on this blog." (And I was doing Electrical Design for nearly 10 before I started this blog - in addition to about 5 more years of various technical and engineering jobs. What he has been doing for the last five years is to waste peoples time babbling about 'BIM' nonstop, and shitting on anyone who dares oppose him).
"I have no problems
with people disagreeing with me, or even calling me a self-absorbed
douche bag motherfucker, but I will not allow meaningless and uneducated
attacks on my professional credentials, character, educations, and
experience." (And I 'will not allow' pretentious assholes to get away with nurturing an environment that is hostile to otherwise productive, dedicated, and talented designers).
"Having worked side by side with other MEP Engineers
using Revit for the past five years (on REAL WORLD buildings in a REAL
WORLD office) I would love to chat about your experiences and share
ideas in a professional and mature conversation." (And I'd love to punch this motherfucker so hard that they have to pick his teeth out of the inside of the back of his fucking skull in order to identify him by his dental records - but based on the responses I've gotten from other MEP engineers and designers, I can guarantee that I'd have to get at the end of an extremely long line to do so).
"P.S. For more information on my professional and academic credentials here are some links:
(P.S. - after reading his 'credentials' I remain unimpressed. This is a guy who, until recently, has been going to school, and managed to get himself a job at a firm that apparently has projects with infinite budgets and lead times. Back over here in the reality that I live in, I was expected to figure out Revit on my own (or go back to school), and figure out how to get projects out the door, despite having a building full of architects (not unlike Jeffrey here) who spend all day long jerking off to BIM models, and are nowhere near completion when the projects are due - and even when they do get done, the building gets built based on 2D drawings, and field-adjustments get made that negate almost all of the benefits of having a 3D model in the first place. As I have said repeatedly - I don't care if these people want to stick their dicks in the Revit Meat Grinder, but when they smile and tell me that I should try it, I have to 'Just Say No'.)
