i have various important things to do at work, but i got caught up on reading wikimedia-l and it was a good reminder that a large percentage of the people on whose behalf i nominally work hold me and all my coworkers in boundless contempt, which is a little bit demotivating.

@liw it's a feeling i've known for a long while, if maybe not quite at this scale, but i also think it just sort of accumulates with time.
