You know, I wished that was the case. Unfortunately, I've seen the
discussion this incident caused on the project in question. It didn't quite
go that way until some calmer minds proposed a different way to resolve this
issue. I would have hoped for a reasonable, respectful reaction (even though
this was a first time office action named as such on this wiki) but was
surprised to see that the response was rather hostile. This is also why I
think that the issue of office actions need to be dealt with in a manner
consistent with the customs of each community. It's not something that
should lead to a lot of conflict or confusion.
