I ask those who support the CVU: 1) how does it

1. I'd hazard a guess that the CVU builds a spirit of community among people
who want to focus on fighting vandalism and gives recognition to an
essential task which really gets very little recognition
It's the *kind* of recognition that troubles me. The Counter Vandalism
Unit is a clear take-off of the Counter Terrorism Unit. Not the kind
of analogy I like to see.
2. Dislike it creates? Seriously? I wasn't aware
of any until this thread
popped up (as opposed to people who have issues with Cool Cat).
I dislike it, seriously.
