Right, that's a frustration. If a note gets accepted you get an email  
after a day or two stating that it's been accepted, but I don't think  
you get anything back if it was not--that happened to me early on, and  
I still don't know for sure why. And that is a communication issue  
that needs to be fixed if RunRev want this feature to succeed.

We ought to try to work out the bumps before we dismiss it for its  
flaws. It's a new service, and is bound to have some rough spots, but  
I'm sure we can work with RunRev to iron them out. I'd hate to see a  
promising new feature languish because we got frustrated early on.
