If "several people" pointed this out, they did not do so on this list.
perhaps you can provide a link to where they did so.

Had I seen anyone point that out I would have commented then, as I do
now, that that is not an acceptable position to take, for reasons
which I'll leave as an exercise for the reader.

I'll also note that a a member of WMF staff, using their wikimedia.org
email address, has thanked people, in this thread, for feedback given
/in this thread/.

have pointed out in this thread.

That's rather an odd assertion, given that I posted a pointer to my
last update on this list, here:


being the talk page of a page Gregory Varnum has told us, in this very
thread, to use for giving feedback. I note that Gregory has since
edited that talk page, so can be presumed to have seen it; albeit he
did not give a reply.
