Hi Shelley,

Maciej's original questions were "Does anyone agree with the inclusion  
of the microdata section?" and "In particular, does anyone think  
microdata is better than including no solutions to address the use  
cases at which it is aimed?"

That's a very, very long way away form not wanting to hear from people  
who don't like the section. In fact, it is asked in a manner that is  
slanted towards non-inclusion of microdata. Anyone agreeing with the  
underlying suggestion that the section might be dropped was obviously  
more than welcome to strengthen that option.

After all, in the email to which you responded Maciej didn't ask "is  
there anyone who disagrees with the way in which I asked this  
question?" and yet you provided your input.

If you disagreed with the way in which the initial questions were  
framed, you were more than welcome to broaden the scope of the enquiry  
by posting to the same thread with additional questions. Yet instead  
you chose to wait and then rant. With the best of intentions it's hard  
to find that constructive.
