thoughts about Garak and interrogations

I think a combination of the wire and Tain not being his audience anymore. With the wire aiding in what seemed to be a ferocious desire to please Tain. Maybe also, a wee bit, living outside of Cardassia and being surrounded by outside views of their culture (kind of a Bashir + the rest influence) may have been nudging him away from that ferociousness?
