I've heard from him once, and he was ranting the one time I heard from him.

There have been various good and bad things said about Chuck Gomes, but at
least he listens and provides feedback.

Of course, Chuck's position (Director of Customer Programs, or some such,
don't remember the exact title) is one where he is expected to provide good
customer service. David's position is not necessarily one where he is expected
to be in contact with customers at all times. But ferchrissakes, if you're
going to talk to customers, you might at least *try* to be polite.
