No sense here. Who is the project ? Only the guys who can respond ?
Correct ? Not the guys who desire to but cannot respond ? So the
courtesy says junks those guys, who belong but cannot respond even if
they want to ? Correct ? I would prefer to be away from such well
polished show of courtesy.

Just because I extended on the metaphor of your choice, which forces you
to think a little more, you blame my understanding. Thanks for the honour.

Well a movie lasts an hour or two. Bug resolution tickets a few weeks.
Can we be a little specific similarly about the Volunteer Ambassador,
when should we assume the Ambassador as dead and not relevant to the
decision making process, is there any scope of expecting that the dead
was not dead at all, but was only sleeping and can wake up any time.

At least, you understood this much, you should thank me. Thanks for the
honourable comments anyway.
