I totally agree.

I discovered this morning that keep using the same wording to reject the
same idea over and over; this means either that I am getting old or that
the argument has been repeated too many times. Perhaps, both.

tasked with fixing something else than the bad effects of proprietary
software (or perhaps not even them).

All the best,
