Well - part of the problem is people might agree and feel silly for mailing
list with "I agree" and "Me too" kind of messages.

At least that is why I haven't been that vocal on it :)

I like the current path being taken and I think its a step in the right

So, should people mail in with "I agree", or only mail if they have
constructive critcism?
