I am clearly going to have to craft a new form letter for work: one that says "No, I won't debug your visualization code and make the plots go; we're providing usable data, not doing your research for you. Sod off, you lazy bastard."

Only, y'know. Diplomatically.

Feign color blindness. That'll ward'em off.

So, wait. You're saying that's not diplomatic?

Damn.

Back to the drawing board.

No, no. You're missing a source of revenue:

"That's not what you paid for, idiot, but if you want to cough up double our highest consulting rate, we'll fix your mess for you."

Diplomatically, of course.

I don't think people pay for the data.

Information wants to be free! It also wants a ham sandwich.

Sadly, Neal is correct: our data is free, so double the consulting rate would be... still free.
