This should indicate that the previous comment was made in good humor, but just so we're clear, I'll indicate it for you -->
Not every smiley indicates humoristic intent, that's the problem. The "" smiley looks rather irritated, to be sure.

Very good, indeed.
Not seeing it, still. Back when we thought Ohnogi was responsible for writing the latter half of Frontiers episodes, we had fake write-ups of discussions in the production staff, which were pointing the finger pretty directly at Kawamori for being at fault. Yot can blame Shaloom for that, not us.

Now that we know better, Kawamori still is the guy who makes the ultimate decisions. Saying "but Yoshino wrote it!" does not exonerate Kawamori from approving it. It's the same as when some major disaster occurs in the U.S.... in the end it is the presidents duty to assume responsibility for the clean-up. "The buck stops here" is a quote from Harry Truman, after all.
