Aaron's replies (and the lack of other people replying) was largely due to the
fact that most of us at aKademy felt he was dealing with it fine, and he was
replying with at least the implicit (at least) approval of most of the people
there. He certainly had mine.
The thing is, in case this isn't clear, we'd like you to be on the team. You
have energy, and enthusiasm, and nobody has a problem with that. You just
have to learn how to *be on the team*, and as far as most of us are
concerned, when it's the usability team, Aaron is the captain. So far
it's more like we're entered in a 4x100m relay, and you're doing the
backstroke. That's not working.
