Gaining allies

Our enemies in ILL are stepping up the war. They have forsaken looking in our catalogue and gone right to ILL. I have seen 4 requests that we already own!!!!!
You can't ILL something we own! It's a last freaking resort there people!! Recall that damn thing.
I know someone, who if we gave her the stupid stick she'd be beating the hell out of people. Some of them in the same room as her. She'd be a good person to have on our side.

Aside from the fact that the people who use ILL can't READ it's scary to know that the best and brightest(HA!) of the next generation are this helpless and lacking in common sense.
I met one person last week who couldn't figure out how to turn on a photocopier and another who had no clue how to buy a copy card. Despite verbal and written directions.
If this is what's in store for our future we need all the allies we can get. Rise up and be heard!
