I can accept Frans as a person, and I can accept the rules in D-I.  However, I
cannot accept that making a minor mistake may lead me to very stressful
situations in which I'm publicly humiliated.  Last night I slept badly, and
I've been all day in a bad mood.  I'm only human, so if I see that this is not
affordable for me, chances are I might end being alienated from D-I.

And yet, I think Frans is capable of doing much better if he wants to.
