I agree in principle, while I think it would yet be unwise to delay WMF
strategic planning and community consultations this year.
However, I think it
As a mostly silent reader of this list, I'd like to spammingly +1 this
message. There's hardly anything more superfluous than these "Welcome from

The Wikipedia Library is really excited about the #1lib1ref campaign taking
off -- we seem to have found a concept that will excite the global
libraries community to talk more with us, about our common mission: helping
the world get access to reliable knowledge.
I do agree in general that generic '+1' emails contribute very little. If
you really want to thank someone, or welcome them, it probably makes a
better impression if you write a little more than that. Say a few lines to
introduce the list, give them a tip or offer them to show them around.

Pardon my poor sense of humour, but I couldn't resist! :P
I believe "thank you" and "please" are magic words, specially in voluntary

Dear Patricio Lorente,
My open letter to the board was six days ago. Could you please take
the following three actions?
1. Acknowledge my open letter sent to you and the board and its
request. This is a courtesy I would expect of the WMF board chair that
needs no discussion or trustee decision

The drawback is that not everyone has the inclination to read everything on
Meta as well. At some stage it is just too much. By insisting on silence,
the silence may become overwhelming and it increases the notion that this
