We communicate in English but that doesn't mean we all the same cultural
background. My native language doesn't do small talk and doesn't have a
word for please. Of course when writing English I try use please when
required by the other party but sugar coating wouldn't have changed what
I wanted to communicate with my message. It would just increase the time
needed to write the message and raise the risk of getting misunderstood.
A short and to the point message is the easiest to understand.

If a thing is important enough then you should use gentoo-dev-announce
under the current rules.
