That's a really nice world Marcel. I'd love to believe that again. However
people will still have ill intentions even here at Apache. Just because we
say all these good things does not mean everyone feels the same way and
economics does rear it's ugly face.

Just look and see the control with which the CEO has ordered back the
minions and they have obeyed. There's nothing Apache Way-ish about this
coordinated effort.

I want to see people put an investment into a community by contributing to
it instead of piling on with zero investment. With such an investment, they
have a vested interest in that community. Without that there's no lose if
it fails and no incentive to make sure the community succeeds.

Combine this and one CEO pulling the strings then that's a bad combination.
That's not how Apache works. But I guess people will find the rhetoric to
justify this some way or another.
