Pasi Pirhoned already made a job and offer it to here to anybody same
way as I (with no accept from Morris).

You are complaining on the wrong place. I newer wrote that WBEL is bad.
Everytime I wrote what is not good and why.
I see no reason to bless Morris in my every mail. He did good job but
then he stopped even promised more and asked others for help. Even there
was a help from others he refused to accept it. This is at least a
"little bit" wrong and this is what you don't want to accept.
I said nothing about "Moris is *****", but only "this is not good".
You don't want to accept it like very different things.
