I second that.

That's one of the things I like about this community. It's interested
in the data. It doesn't ask people to fill in this web form, use that
email template, or use a particular jargon or language. It's the
data that counts.

I'm sure Robert didn't intend that as his manifesto for the post of
TZ Coordinator, but in my opinion it would be a good one. Long may
it continue like this.
