The supervisor is 100% "to blame". Even if the trainee is a liar, cheat, thief and crook....the supervisor is 100% responsible. The trainee may be 100% "to blame" as well, but the supervisor assumes all responsibility for what he signs.
I am not anti-trainee, I am anti-ANYONE......who signs a fraudulent report, a sloppy report or an inflated report. Bob


Bob was 100% correct ...........then.............. and STILL. His absence from the N ew Millenium Forum has left a Large Void.

Interesting to see many of the poster names from those mid-January '01 date. Many are still here, a number of them carry an alias identity today and at least one has passed away.

Too bad I can't open those postings where my name appears in that shared link. I'd love to re-read...what I was thinking back then. Remember when there used to be that personal profile display of the formal registrant # for any participant ? The establishment of that formal registration protocol began about one year later in mid-January of 2002. Now it's just a month-and-year display with no sequential number.

I was #185 back then, and I guess that sequential numbering system is stored somewhere. Now I have to guess....are we up to about ~35,000 today ? Not all are appraisers, or course, but surely is a representation of the big-tent policy that exists in this chat arena.
