Santiago, all I'm suggesting is that everyone take
a step back, a deep breath, and cut out all the
arguing.  It isn't constructive, and it doesn't
actually resolve anything.  The problem you seem
to be having with the rest of the infrastructure
team goes well beyond this thread, and well beyond
this subject.  I wish I understood why you feel
the way you do about us.
