True, but _I_ can't make it any faster.

that shouldn't be the case for people who know already that they are
busy, unless they like being busy all the time by postponing what they
should do (I am ignoring direct accusations, to which I think one
should respond)

If postponing is done on purpose, then this proves that the person in
question should be replaced. The only way that accusation that "X is
slow" to be removed is to make things work faster (especially for
discontent people, until the whole process becomes faster by itslef -
i.e. repairing the whole process).

P.S.: Taking into account I have applied a few days ago I find this
really disturbing, and because _is_known_ that NM/DAM/... is slow, I
can't accuse anyone of bad faith, in case my application takes a long
time, can I?
