in my experience, damn few of us live up to our own standards. Even fewer live up to the standards imposed by others.
Nobody can impose standards on anyone. You (or anyone else) live up to your own standards, or don't. It's got nothing to do with anyone else except you. SVB chose to live up to his standards, if you've got a problem with that why don't you mention it to him? See if he cares more than I do about what you think.
