Huh?  That's backwards from how things are.  The group in power says nothing,
so you do not know who they are.

Because they don't have to stop.  New packages are the only thing requiring
attention(more so now with CIM).

And you couldn't have done it at a worse time.  CIM, real freeze, release.
All have been going on.  If you do not know that, then you really are living
in your own world, isolated from the rest of society by your own accord.

Respect is earned.  You do not earn respect by requesting changes.  You earn
respect by showing you can get along with the status quo first.
