What the hell does "wheel spin" mean exactly?

I think you'll also find that just about every single member of TWG has 
a major issue with the characterisation in your manifesto that we "lack 
sufficient resources or vision".

Just because we don't currently want to replace our entire 
infrastructure with your preferred web scale, buzzword compliant, cloud 
based, multi centre "solution" doesn't mean we lack resources or vision.

We just happen to prefer an evolutionary approach while you prefer a 
revolutionary approach.
