Caitlin, thank you for caring about the concerns that were raised and
taking action to address them. I can imagine that it is difficult to know
how volunteers feel about some action or message. It would be nice if in
case of doubt there would be some invitation to participate assessing the
lines or suggesting alternatives. I'm sure that in this list there are some
people who would be willing to offer their perspective on how the message
comes across. As Pine has suggested a public discussion on how to
incorporate community review would be interesting.
