I'm not trying to say anything about those system administrators,
but rather that your chastisement of Steve is in any way justified.
It's his mirror.  He puts HIS time into supporting it.  He puts
mostly HIS money into supporting it, although others have donated
small amounts of money or hardware.

Maybe its not a big deal to you, but he has given reasons why
he doesn't want to do it, they just aren't good enough for you.
So you bash Steve and hope that that will convince him that
he's too stupid to use his own judgement and will blindly do
as you say.
