Thanks for writing this.

Forgive me, but some of your phrasing has sent red flags to the
editor-in-chief part of my brain. Once you've added the additional

to tighten up this post. I'm not talking about changes to message (or to
your voice), just trying to tighten up some phrases to make them read

Perhaps we could share a Google Doc?
