I wasn't using that as an example of them doing something wrong. I've 
spoken several places (including here on NANOG) in support of people 
doing what they need to do to meet their fiduciary responsibility to 
their stakeholders.

My point was simply that there are 2 schools of thought on this issue, 
and both are so far out on the poles that meaningful changing of minds 
is next to impossible (and arguably, totally unnecessary).
