Possible Perception Problem? When a non-contributing user sees an
opportunity for improvement in the projects <insert your preferred
project activity here>, the user should not only make a suggestion but
also state why it is a good idea and situations that support the need
for an improvement.

This presents a ripe opportunity for a perception of "unwarranted
criticism", "whining" by someone who paid nothing, "lack of appreciation
for all the *free* hard work we do", etc.
