DrHyde's commentary is a good example of why union power can be a bad thing. He considers his personal powerlessness to be sufficient reason to disrupt a smoothly functioning system
Did you lie deliberately there, or are you just stupid and incapable of reading?
He reminds me of the nasties from Earth First or the Weathermen, who believed it is perfectly legitimate to murder to make a point.
Ah, there's the answer to my question. You're a moron. Thanks for letting us know.

    Whew! You are correect (the first assumption, anyway). I remembered your nasty, vitriolic tone and read more into it than what you actually said. It was actually apl who discussed disrupting the means of production.

    As to the second point (?), I occasionally do make errors of fact and I usually apologize for them. Whether that makes me a "moron" is up to the perceiver and his system of semantic distinctions. In my perception of reality, somebody who drips verbal poison to the extent that you do isn't likely to live long enough to leave a positive legacy or very intelligent children, so in the bigger picture, I don't think I score so badly.
