Disclosure... I work for IBM.

I agree with your concern about code dumping and I completely respect 
your comments.  However, I object to the logic you are applying here. 
IBM'ers participate on projects as individuals and it's the actions of 
individuals that should be judged.  To tar all IBM'ers because of bad 
behavior (perceived or real) of a few is just wrong.
