    Robert,
    Congratulations on your selection as this year’s Most Helpful Poster. Too bad you weren’t there to pick up your award. In fact, none of the VIP winners were there. Oh well, they missed a good one.Now, here is a quick question to earn your award. It is easy enough to calculate the probability of X number of points in a row above/below the average on a control chart. What is the probability of calculating X points in a row going up or going down (WE #3)? Thanks.

    I was trying my best, but got too busy at work.Cheers, AlastairBTW – the up and down numbers can be done using Monte Carlo. There is no logical way of figuring it out. You have to use a known distribution too. (WestElec#3)

     I’ve won an award here and there during my career but I do believe this is the first time I’ve ever won a conditional award and been offered a conditional congratulation.  A quick check of Duncan indicates the probabilities of going in either direction – up to down vs. down to up are the same but I don’t know the mechanics of the calculation so I’ll have to give it some thought.  In the meantime I’ll offer a tentative thank you for your conditional congratulation.  :-)

    Robert,
    The congratulations were wholehearted but now that you have been stumped one day after the award, one wonders….:-). I assume you are referring to table Q in the Duncan book. Possibly I have motivated you to search the trailer for the original citation at the bottom of the table and come up with your usual brilliant answer. Thanks.

    Come on now, Darth…It’s quite clear that you and Robert B are in fact the same person. Talk about self-congratulation!I talked to one of your old cohorts. He said you 2 are 1 in the same.Time to fess up, mister.

    Hey Darth, time to stop playing with yourself. It was stupid as Truth
    Teller, it will not be any better as Jesse.

    Stan,
    Feel free to check with Katie on your hypothesis.  She is very responsive to issues like this because they are getting out of hand.  She took care of Fake TT and I guess she will do the same with JJ.  Dash her a little note if you are convinced it is me.

    Darth,As usual your hypothesis is incorrect. She has neither taken of the
    original TT (the bigot who takes shots at people’s physical attributes
    and ethnicity) nor the Fake TT. It is clear you are Jesse again playing
    your dumbaxx games.Pretend you are a professional. I know it will be hard.

    Stan, you are getting a bit bothersome. If you wish to continue down this path with personal attacks, I am more than willing to go down it with you. If you take a moment from your recent frenetic posting splurge, you will see the recent TT posts have been deleted by Webby. If you take my advice and contact Katie offline she will confirm that I am not Jesse, the original nor the II. The original TT has indicated that he will be offline for a while so accept that for what it is and trust that Webby will do the right thing. And after last night’s demonstration, I am not sure you are in a position to question my professionalism or behavior. I have attempted to drop the issue and respect your wishes. If you wish to continue with the cheap shots just let me know.

    Darth,I don’t think this troll is the real Stan. In his last post, he accused you of being TT, which is clearly wrong.What is up with all the trolls lately?

    Cathy,
    If you are correct, then I humbly apologize to the real Stan and now he knows how it feels to be hijacked. As it turns out, I was the original, witty, well written and insightful Truth Teller. The persona was created prior to the Conference to help drum up some excitement and volume. Apparently it worked. Furthermore, many of the more frequent posters along with the iSixSigma staff were aware. I retired TT on the last day of the Conference because he had served his purpose. Recall, he was off to Japan for a month.Recent TT posts are a fake as Webby has discovered and deleted. I hope that this puts things to rest with regards to TT. Jesse, on the other hand is probably the Fake TT and Webby is on the hunt again. It’s a shame all this drama has to permeate the Forum.

    D’oh! Had me fooled, although I feel vindicated that I called TT a better-than-average troll. Dark Lord of the Forum, indeed.I still think this is a fake Stan, though.

    You may be right about the “Stan” post but I guess we will let Webby take care of it. And I guess, thanks for the back handed compliment. TT started out on the highroad and quickly went South as the conference neared conclusion. It then became a relief that he left town. All in fun including the little remark about Mike Carnell for which he has forgiven me….but it cost me dinner and drinks. He is a great guy with a wonderful sense of humor and much to teach all of us about SS.

    No troll – Darth is TT – complete with bigotry about people’s personal
    appearance and their ethnicity

    Are you also the bigot who made fun of my friend’s stature?

    No fake, just no tolerance for people who think ethnic and slurs about
    people’s stature are unforgivable. Especially when given the
    opportunity and they choose to lie rather than admit what a small
    weasel they are.

    Not sure you are using the word appropriately. Please search for a more descriptive and appropriate word. Racist would be more appropriate in reference to ethnic background. Just plain insulting would work for the context of personal appearance. I’m troubled with the use in the definition of “hatred and intolerance”. Please repost where TT expressed hatred and intolerance towards someone. Be careful, it has to be blatant and not interpretable as humor. Thanks for your kind attention to this matter.Main Entry: big·ot
    Pronunciation: ˈbi-gət
    Function: noun
    Etymology: French, hypocrite, bigot
    Date: 1660: a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

    Stan, you keep coming back to this over and over again, is this what it is all about?Stan Writes Wednesday, 3rd February 2010, 6:42 AM:Could I do it differently? Yes, Mike Carnell does a nice job of it. Every year or so I drop the persona and….. When this forum starts respecting straight up advice……, I’ll step up and be as big a man as Mike.Truth Teller Writes Wednesday, 3rd February 2010, 3:07 PM.:If you saw how much Mike Carnell has been eating you would understand why he is a “big person”. Oh my gosh, what a bigot, racist, intolerant troll I am. After Mike threatened to throw me out the window, we went out to dinner instead. Calling me a small weasel is bigoted, racist and childish and I have already received an email from PETA. Time to drop this line. I think we all know how you feel about the above exchange.

    I have apologized to Mike about the “big person” comment which he accepted. I don’t have to apologize to you for that. I apologize for “fooling you” and carrying the TT persona beyond a point which you felt was not honest anymore. That’s what I got and hopefully it is sufficient. Now can we go back to helping others on this site? By the way, your flurry the past few days have actually contained some helpful responses. Guess you are going for most prolific and most helpful. You are off to a good start.

    No you haven’t. You talked and excused yourself. You laughed and no body
    laughed with you. You can never be in a receive mode – actually understand reactions
    to your excusing yourself – when you are always in a transmit
    mode.You thought you had a great joke going only you were the only one
    laughing.Pick up the phone and listen to the guy you offended and if you
    get that, also pick up the phone and listen to the guy you lied
    outright to when given the opportunity to make things right.Otherwise – go away.

    I know who JJII is. They innocently made an assumption. I sit aprox 10 ft from her and straightened her out.

    ….and I’m Robert Butler and while I appreciated the initial sentiment I feel like I’ve been dragged through a bar fight…given the direction this thread took I really wish Katie could either change the header on all of the posts to this topic or just delete the entire run…..

    I agree Robert. The first 4 posts were good until it went downhill. It, in no way, reflects upon you and your contributions.
