Wow, such an insightful statement contained in a mere simple declarative sentence that is nothing more than a mild ad hominem. It's not your fault, of course, that mods are stupid. Congratulations on your unearned moderation. Perhaps you could follow up your post with another that explains why AC's post is shockingly naive?
Sorry to hurt your feelings. It's quite simple, really. Management is often not very good at identifying the real performers and critical people in a department or team. They make decisions based on politics, who kisses the most ass and who is related to the boss's wife. Most people who have been around the block a few times have learned this. YMMV.
