Very good observation :)

I think it goes to show that it pays to be in the bussiness of
actual creativity and not the bussiness of appearences, if we work
towards the object at hand and ignore any slander and critisizms
we will end up being popular and have a good end result - if
we waste time trying to satisfy everyone, trying to get popular
and conforming to suits, we'll just dry up inside what will eventually
become nothing but an empty image.

Note I'm just jumping in on something that I find is just
a great life lesson for everyone - this is not a part of whatever
current argument is going on, I just found it to be a great 
observation: "We are not at that point yet" :D

A quote from the I Ching that came to mind:

"We should do every task for its own sake as time and place demand and
 not with an eye to the result. Then each task turns out well, and
 anything we undertake succeeds"

Just a friendly breath of fresh air for you incase your office
hours are nearly as boring and monotonous as my own ;-)
