I think this is a great idea. I have been working on developing my skills
in giving feedback and this would give me an opportunity to practice and
perhaps get feedback on how I give feedback.

Several months ago there was a frequent contributor whom I regularly
deleted without even opening her messages. I did this because she
regularly advocated a position that I felt was antithical to a systems
perspective and presented her opinions as facts. I felt that I should
explain this to her but I was disappointed with my efforts to express
myself and finally gave up.

Hope others are also interested.
