It is invalid to go from:

"People object to the way the DAM does things"


"People don't like James as DAM"

without any evidence or rationale that their objections are related to
him specifically.

That aside, I would be very worried if there weren't any people
objecting to the DAM. That would indicate he's letting people get away
with too much. This means it's useless as a measure of problems.

So, I find both your argument and your interpretation of its
conclusion to be entirely without merit.
