I believe that what Uncle George is saying is:
(paraphrase) 'Why should I spend my time debugging your app if you aren't
going to really care that much about the debugging info/patches/whatever
info collected about the issue?'
It may be that the contribution of Uncle George is sufficient to warrant
granting him a service contract so that HPQ can appropriately value the information
they are being given.
Just a thought.

implies heresy; and heresy implies disloyality -- so obviously thinking must be stopped"
