correct, it did move quickly, and no, it doesn't take away the ability 
to question its relevance...

also correct... my approach would have been to bring it up on 
admin first because, as an admin, we have a greater responsibility 
(IMO) to present a unified front and make sure we are consistent 
as a body...

after all, with great power (admin?) comes great responsibility...

commented, it would look like a shot... but that's not what 
happened, so it's all good...
