I'm only on my payroll as well, and it does give one a marvellous sense 
of freedom.

However, as I am a lot further away from the mothership than you are I 
am not very
good at assessing which outcomes are actionable.

As I stated earlier: I see my role as a provoker of debate, because 
debate IS needed if we
are not to become like some cult taking orders from on high and 
continually going "Yes".

However, I do think that the person who said "Good luck list/livecode 
community, I'll see you later." is not helping at all.

That is just negative flack that does not lead anywhere.

If that person really wanted to wish the community some 'luck' s/he 
would continue to join in the debate and
address the points that have been raised so far in some sort of 
constructive fashion.
