No, this isn't really constructive. As I wrote, try to drive the
discussion by adding substance to it, rather than fueling flames
by requesting others to refine.
Since it is an area where you may be able to contribute, I think
it would be great if you did!

I think you're right that complaints are about your response, but I
absolutely do not interpret the complaints to be that you personally
or the PMS team did not implement the requested feature. I think
that's a misunderstanding of yours.
If you don't understand something of what thus far has been written,
then why not ask specific questions to fill those gaps, and move on?
