Thanks for responding, Jamey.

That is my modus operandi as well. It would be foolish to assume that the "other guy" performed with due diligence, as the three VIRs illustrate.

This is a self-preserving attitude that has served you well, but with the recent addition of the STAR FuPR measure, you are protecting yourself at the expense of others, at least statistically speaking. I am much more likely to reject something that I can't identify properly, rather than fail it, because I don't want to make any mistakes, pro-pass or pro-fail.

Until the inspection, maintenance, diagnostic and repair processes can be properly delineated and integrated with each other, the FuPR will be a worthless waste of time, effort, and careers.
