The "negative things people have been saying" aren't in the GR.
I've no doubt that Ganneff is trying to act well, but I feel changes
would get a fairer hearing if DDs consider them after the release.
If it demotivates *this discussion* for a while (rather than all
actions), then that's OK.

Also, maybe some behaviour around the GR (like the subject line on
this subthread, for example) is demotivating in general, but that's
less about the GR and more about social (in)tolerances.

Honey and vinegar sounds like a particularly nasty drink.  I think
honey and lemon would make people happier.  Try it.
