For the "editorial changes" GR, I didn't have the time to follow the
entire flamewar and voted in belief that the changes were indeed
editorial because I believed in the text in the CfV. I was
horror-stricken after the GR passed and people said what we had
indeed voted for.

I have a sincere distrust for CfVs since then since I feel badly misled.
