Beg to differ too
The truth is that we could use some cooperation and cooperation on all sides.
System Administrators are fond of saying that theirs is a thankless job. They are usually 100% correct. They work long nights, deal with problems most End Users couldn't and don't need to understand, and tend to develop anti-social communication styles with their End Users(aka "The IS God Complex") because of a lack of appreciation and comments like "Wish we had a real MIS department." Who can blame them?
End users are fond of saying that System Administrators are rude to them. They are usually 100% correct. End Users work long nights, deal with problems most System Administrators couldn't and don't need to understand, and tend to develop distrust and fear of the System Administrators because of a lack of cooperation and grunts of "I have root -- your email is toast". Who can blame them?
WAKE UP: You can learn from each other. You can thank each other. You can play UT with each other.
End Users need to listen and remember and say "Thank you" to the System Administrators every once in a while.
System Administrators need to help and teach and fix and say "You're welcome" to the End Users every once in a while.
Can't we all just get along?
