I don't know, but I wish I did.
If we knew which of the two suggestions "did not have the effect
intended" (and why), we could come up with plenty of alternate suggestions.
In addition, a few of our suggestions were of the "this is way too confusing
to read" variety rather than the "this is non-free" variety, and if they
didn't take those, that's just fine.
