Nick's Niche: The funny things that happen in the Internet forums

Some of you, who are at least as old as I am, may find the title of this column familiar. It’s my take on the title of a Broadway comedy first produced in 1962 called “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” based upon the book written by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart. I remember the movie version with Zero Mostel released in 1966. It was a very funny flick. If you’ve never seen it, you should rent a copy and watch it.

My reason for using this title is to discuss the use of the Internet and its blogs or forums to obtain knowledge or information on the topic of powder coating. These venues provide unbridled and unedited information on a variety of subjects on the topic of powder coatings. Some of the information is very good and can be helpful when you’re trying to support a powder coating process that is having difficulties. However, you have to be cognizant of the fact that by definition anyone can ask a question in these forums and anyone can provide their opinion or answer to that question. This doesn’t mean that the person answering the question or providing the opinion has anymore knowledge or experience than the person asking the question in the first place. It just means they have a computer and an Internet connection to publish their “advice.”
