Please don't do that.  You are indicating that I can't express an 
opinion without it being considered a final decision or a directive. 
That was not my intent.  What I want is for everyone to be able to 
freely consider suggestions irrespective of the source.

That is defiantly not true.  Actually I try to not consider the source 
of the suggestion, but only the pros and cons of that suggestion.  There 
are commits that are made all the time where I would do things 
differently, but what is there is good too so a comment or change is not 
needed.  Different is not always bad.  A couple of weeks ago I wanted to 
freeze for 7.8 but you felt the time was not right, so I took your 
advice, not because of who gave that advice, but because the arguments 
you made supporting your suggestion convinced me that it was the right 
thing to do.
