Again, though, the purpose of the email was to be informative and to communicate - and tag wranglers aren't the ones who are being asked to solve this issue; that's the workgroup. Nor am I saying that tag wranglers expressing their views is a problem (far from it!); what stuck out to me, though, due to my past history with the discussions, were the abusive comments.

I can't point to specific emails or wranglers, of course, and in any case I'd be talking about my own subjective judgments of just who was being abusive - I had nothing to do with writing the email, though it's probably pretty clear that I support the Tag Wrangling Chairs in their effort to make their work environment less stressful on them and more respectful of everyone involved. I can only suggest, as an outsider, that you take any questions you may have about what kind of language they're talking about to them.
