hi.  Speaking as a member of the TC, I'd really like to encourage people
to not think of coming to the TC only to get stuff overruled.  we can be
a resource for helping people understand why communication is not
working and helping people understand each other.  If someone feels that
their input was not heard, I'd rather them ask for help with that than
have lingering frustrations build up.  Not being heard is different from
not being agreed with.  When I'm not heard I'm typically frustrated
because I don't have confidence that the people making the decision
considered what I was saying or frustrated because the rationale for the
decision doesn't address some objection I raised.
That tends to cause me to think about whether I should spend my time
In contrast, I end up not being agreed with all the time.  I can
understand the tradeoffs people are making, and can value the decision
and process even when it is not one I'd make.

Now, it sounds like involving the TC is premature here on either ground,
but we can help do more than just overrule stuff.
