Flapdoodle folly ...


There are some crowd behaviours that never cease to amuse me, especially when it comes to online forums and communities.

Having worked with (and then for) the Open University for the last eight years. There are still activities on different forums that give me pause for thought. Recently; a partner certification organisation changed their certification. If you are experienced; in their ways and the way of certification you will appreciate that this business as usual. The maintenance process ensures that their certification remains current.

Personal experience has enabled me to gauge that this happens every three to four years. Enough time to have seen the reaction of a few more than twice.

So, time comes around again, and the flapping begins, forum posts erupt my otherwise peaceful Easter break. The panic only subsides when we post a (not) news item and mass email.
