No, that's the time for other people to offer assistance you can use. If
they're not able or willing to do that, well tough luck. Offering
assistance that they don't want isn't particularly valuable, complaining
about it is counterproductive, and attacking the people for not doing
what you want is unacceptable.

No, I'm not working for him at all. Perhaps you'd like to show me the
employment contract and the pay slips that indicate otherwise?

If you want to help, there are plenty of ways. If you're only willing
to help in some particular ways that aren't desired, go setup your own
distribution with our blessing.
