So, from the article you referred to:

This, I believe, is Matthew's way of saying that this is not all set in stone,
and that we'd encourage you to come up with better ideas because we don't like
this all that much.

Then from your second post on the subject, you said:

You see why maybe that comes across as a bit of a fib?  I'm not saying you're
a bad person or something, but you appear to be reacting emotionally without
fully thinking through what you're saying, and as a result overlooking
things and contradicting yourself in an embarrassing way. You may want to do
some more sleeping on it.
