Let's keep it that way.  I do respect that you are anxious to see progress on the resolution of the topic, but these same points could be made in a less antagonistic way.

As I explained to Erica, it isn’t meant to be read personally. What I said is that the community should be as inclusive as possible and that prejudicing certain opinions as “trivial” conceptually runs against that.

That’s also my reply to the opinion others have shared that subscribing and publishing your email address is a kind of “good pain” to filter out the weak. Take the String model for example - isn’t it possible that this one particular discussion is critical to my business, and that I don’t really care about “for-else syntax” or “Annotation of Warnings/Errors” or “Compound Names for Enum Cases”? I don’t see the logic which says that if I care very much about one aspect of the language, I must care equally about everything else that ever changes with it.

I don’t understand why some feel it is so important to discourage ad-hoc contributions. Open-source lives off ad-hoc.
