Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

It is exciting to see my friends in the IBM Partner community sporting their spiffy new badges, especially Theo and Gab with "lifetime achievement" badges.
 
But none for me. I'm not fishing for anything, or even sad. I'm not an ideal IBM partner. Sometimes, I show IBM up by making email look good when they cannot, or enabling functionality they have never seen fit to add. Sometimes, I am critical of their many shortcomings. Most of the time, I just don't play the game.
 
So, why bring it up? I guess because I am not alone among the many who make IBM successful and each of those badge-owners successful, but who don't get badges themselves. I've known a lot of IBMers and partners and ISVs and customers and developers and administrators, many of whom do their jobs and don't get noticed.
 
So, this badge is for you. You know who you are if you are reading this, though almost certainly you are not. The vast majority of you do not read these blogs or hang out on PlanetLotus. 
 
Nonetheless, this badge is for you. Have a great day!
