I take it you are the master in question?
Do you write a lot of emails and memos professionally?
...perhaps you are guilty of favoring clarity over emotional sensitivity...No question about that ..... this post reads like contract law. ....."the other party"
Why apologize or explain the circumstances of how the "other party" came into the mix when the consent framework clearly covers that.
I can see why you'd want to apologize for the execution of the notification process...but haven't you done that already in private channel and or in person ....and really isn't water under the bridge. Why now why here?
You're open to constructive suggestions from Johanna or the forum. And on what? Whats the problem as you see it ?
