Thanks for posting that Dancho. It's quite the read but well worth it. I note that there has ever been the struggle to get things right when they seem to tip in odd directions. I take that as a good thing. Not much has changed.
One thing is for sure though, it is well worth it to fight the good fight as it were and not give in. If enough of us got together and made it damn clear that we were not happy with the way things are, things would have to change.
