Hi Anne -

We certainly understand that the deadline we set can be problematic in
some instances, as appears to be the case for you. We have three reasons
we set a deadline for comment acknowledgements:

1) To ensure we receive them in time to take material action on any
concerns before our next scheduled publication;

2) To have a date after which we can reasonably record the commenter
acknowledgement as "not received";

3) To help the commenter ensure this is on their todo list.

While we need to meet the above goals, we are willing to offer a
reasonable extension to the deadline on a case-by-case basis. Is two
weeks enough for you? That would make 15 February 2010 the date by which
we hope to receive your acknowledgement.

We will go ahead and plan on that for your case. If two weeks extra is
not sufficient, please contact us again so we can come to an arrangement
that meets our needs identified above as well as your own time constraints.
