My comment, ment mostly as a Post Script to my other comments, was a
reply to someone's comment that they could still accept commentary via
email, so they didn't have to retype it all for the Gazette.

Your tone implies that you cannot take an honest discussion on whether
or not this is a good policy.  Star asked for commentary on the
policy, that was what I was giving as part of this list.

Will it kill me to snail-mail them? No.
Would I prefer to email them? Yes.
