I sent a polite email to Meridian Associates (http://meridianassociates.biz/professional.htm) about a month ago. Unfortunately I haven't received a reply.

Here's the mail I sent:

--
Hello Meridian Associates,

On the "Professionals" page, you state about Mehdi Ali:

"His prior experience includes serving as the President of Commodore International, where he accomplished a major operational turnaround. "

I am quite amused how taking over a healthy company with great R&D and a huge technological edge, and then make it go bankrupt within a few years is a "major operational turnaround".

I am fully aware, that making a company change from "operational" to "non-operational" can be considered a "major operational turnaround". But is that what you meant?

Trust and confidence is more important than ever. Statements like the ones above, certainly does not raise the credibility of Meridian Associates.

I would like a reply.

Best regards,

My Name
--

Any guesses why they didn't reply?

You know, sometimes I wonder.

Ignorance truly is bliss.

Is this really important. No.

If you're considering hiring them for something, then yes.

They don't have a converter that can translate sarcastic humor in to some thing they can understand?

It is important to hold people accountable, and correct false information.
Or perhaps we should forget it and he should be offered position of President at Hyperion or Amiga Inc.

You'd probably get an interesting response if you launched a DDoS attack on them..

Stating the facts and pointing out disgraceful "history revisionism" really doesn't qualify as being a "rant".

We don't hold people accountable. This is none of our business.

Chill out people. Some people do learn in life and then move on. Maybe he did maybe he didn't but really. DOES IT MATTER.

Did you really expect an answer? I mean, come on, sending an email more than a decade after the demise of C= is not going to impress anybody there.

To not respond is very bad PR for a company.

That's true but hey this company has Mehdi! Proven trackrecord of bad PR?

Nope, didn't expect a reply (as I wrote above), but it would have been amuzing if I had received one.

Even though it has been more than a decade, it doesn't change the fact that it's quite hard to find what was so fantastic about the "major operational turnaround" that Mehdi Ali achieved at Commodore.

In my opinion, the bankrupcy of Commodore was done on pupose by the execs because they stole money out of the company.

My theory is there was heavy influence from a large yet fearful software concern.

Anyway, if you really want a response from the kind of people that would associate with that scum you should start by using their language - which is weasel.

Formation of the brand is invited for the introduction for all shapes. The branch of the aus assignment help is implied for the cases. The skills are rough for the authentication of the blocks for all options for the citizens.

Do you really expect any answer from them? Something like Mehdi Ali defending himself against an anonymous Amiga user?
