I have been watching the fallout regarding this issue on both the 
advocacy and questions email lists.  It is clear from the advocacy 
list, that the announcement was made prematurely and did not convey the 
intended message either clearly or completely.  It is clear from 
reading both lists that much of the anger is based upon false 
assumptions, misinformation and incomplete editing of the leaked 

I (just a user) ask that the petition effort be delayed until the 
official announcement is made and the issues can be drawn out and 
discussed more clearly.

Humbly and respectfully,

Andrew Gould
