<serious>Here I am. I'm me. I'm somewhat open-minded, so if you want to make a point, my advice is to present it logically, preferably with lots of evidence, and in a balanced way. Also, if an idea stinks, you don't have to go on and on about it. I'll probably get the point soon enough.

Also, try to avoid this common mistake (don't worry--most of us have done it at some point): not reading the whole idea. I've seen several ideas where the specific concern voiced by someone (in some cases, by many) was already addressed in the idea itself. Please (you can't say I wasn't polite about this), make sure you have read and understand the whole idea before you annotate it. It helps cut the wasted-word count.</serious>
