Not sure what you want to do, how many admins does it take to admin? If 
they are doing a bad job, you should try to get them fired.  It sounds 
like they are on top of things, though?

It was a good post, I agreed with the first reply, but I would make the 
explanation simpler: "Using .d folders is cool!"
