    I see it more in the context of - overall - BP not doing nearly enough.  They haven't adequately compensated those who are losing work due to this debacle, and they haven't even remotely been doing what they should to deal with the oil in the water and on the surface.  So when I hear "thanks for your hard work", I'm not immediately thinking of the ROV operators or the others who are working hard - I'm thinking of BP from the top down and everything they haven't done.

    But I take your point.

      It's kind of an interesting question whether they are just ordinary schmucks in an environment that made them behave badly, or sociopathic alien criminals who sought out an opportunity to make money by risking someone else's planet. But what they did and are doing is not excusable whichever is true.
