Giving good feedback is a very time consuming activity, even if the document is 
already good. If I had to give good feedback on the current state of the 
document it would take me so much time that I would basically end up rewriting 
it entirely. So if you are asking for my time to review something I expect a 
minimal amount of quality. Before this quality level is reached I reserve 
myself the right to say that the document feels like unstructured, poorly 
written, random ramblings.

To be honest I don't give a shit about the notion of community. Bands of 
individuals gather for sometime to share a common goal and create something and 
then disband to pursue other goals and that's the way it should be. This kind 
of politically correct nurturing community things tend to produce hypocritical 
and asslicking cultures for people who value the community (or their position 
within) more than what it actually produces. And if you value the community 
more than what it produces you are worshipping shit â or at least I'm not 
personally interested â the real world is more interesting.
