Please keep up with your helpful comments even when nitpicking!  While
lacking the full context (no quote of the original mail) I just can wild
guess that possibly a similar thing might have happened as it was some
time ago in one of my packages:  In the first place I was overlooking
the real problem which was mentioned in a short sentence after a more
verbose minor comment about spelling.

While I really like your comments it might perhaps cause less friction
(and avoid mails like those from Charles) when you would "tag" your mail

  Rejection reason / major problem:

  Additional hint (not relevant for accepting):

or something like this.

Thanks for your work on the NEW queue
