Interesting that I'm the one criticized for lack of tact.
Well, to address the issue head on, my point is that I've been very tactful for quite some time. I've poked. I've prodded. I've asked nicely and still there hadn't been a response. I would have approached him via PM but I've learned my lesson about that. At some point the writing is on the wall, yes? That is my point. Letting one member kill something because... well, I'm not going to even make a guess at that, seems quite silly.
When approached privately by Kristie we had some excellent discussion about the whole thing and came to an agreement. I backed out of the argument and agreed that I wouldn't ask Jack for anything else, which I did. The only thing I wanted to leave the thread with is to question why someone who had time to comment on every other active thread in General Banter didn't have the time to respond in any way, shape, or form.
That is all.
So why am I responding to this point, Brian? Who even cares. The important part, the idea, has been killed. Thanking groups of volunteers (in this instance) is still exclusively in the purview of Jack. It is just a shame that that simple and wonderful idea has been destroyed.
