Yes. Their company's problem. I must say I'm getting rather sick of this hiding behind culture. Does anyone think it's good for _anyone_ from any culture to be publicly called upon their mistakes? Public is simply what this development is and what makes it different from other types.

People who can't deal with it either grow up, go away or better still, try their damndest to minimise mistakes to avoid the experience in the first place. That last one in fact is one of the fundamental reason why open source works.

Do feel free to call me a culturally insensitive clod -- I'll wear the badge with pride...
