I could be wrong, but I took Sam's post as a suggestion. It seemed
perfectly reasonable to me even though I've been interested in the
thread because if I am patient and wade through the necessary repetition
I get introduced to a lot of concepts and details that I've not been
exposed to.

I did not see a threat (and actual apparent follow-through) to block or
remove anyone, as we have seen in the past.

So I just wanted to say I think nothing was wrong with the *suggestion*
made.
