Nowhere in my posts did I say that you ought to commit more patches, even less 
all of them. But I won't repeat what I said. Never mind that.

From your reply, though, you make it *sound like* you don't care how you get 
what you want, as long as you get it. I know you are not like that. We all 
know your great leadership and human values.

My main point is: please do listen to people who are better known than I am, 
when they talk about some overdue systemic changes. 
You could get much more than what you are already getting by making sure 
everyone can work in much better conditions where they feel that their time 
is valued (to be clear: I am NOT talking about committing indiscriminately). 

Blessings to you (and to the upcoming cashewnut and its carrier),


Because we and the world need to change.
Intimate Relationships, peace and harmony in the couple.
