Oh... I think he would. Regardless of whether I like someone's
atitude or POV. If they are real need I can set aside my personal
POV and offer a helping hand. I would like to think that Ward would
do the same.

There are a number of things and POV's that I dislike about Michiel.
But that doesn't mean that I am unwilling to say that I agree with him
when I think he is right.
