Come on dooood.  We're not plants over here.  We can read into the
subtle tone you injected into your email.  Several people contacted me
off list about your attitude and that's when google made it all clear.

When people post to this list to ask about stuff they don't have a you
"guys are flawed because ... " attitude even if they disagree.  That's
just not how you interact with people even if they're messing something
up.  You can tell us something does not work for your needs and here's
why we should consider doing it another way.

Anyway yes we are interested in your input.  Anything we can do to make
ADS better we want to hear it.  Please feel welcome but don't be shocked
if people sense something is off.
