I think that eliminating one's own mistakes is a matter of course that does not need many

Of course I took a look at it, because I was thrilled by Peter's quick response to my inquiry.

That would have been nice, but again nothing happened. Or am I overlooking the publication
of the blog post?

In any case, there is already a new request from an affected user in our forum?
How long do we want to leave our users without information?

I didn't do that after Peter accused me of writing "toxic mail" and I had to fear that any

I will make up for it immediately, trusting that this will not be interpreted negagtiv.
