You're talking about a concerted effort.  So far, I haven't seen the
levels of cooperation between providers that is required.  I'm all for
everyone holding hands and squashing out issues.  But until you get
past the isolationist mindset (you must be sick of me saying that by
now) good luck...

I think we're both in agreement that until * starts saying "If I
don't stop this today, it will hurt me tomorrow", that the
cooperation required to address and stop these issues will be nil.
