Hi @cher and @sanspanic . I want to apologize for the hidden comment feature's tooling and messaging, and how it's not as clear as it needs to be. It has caused a lot of misunderstanding, and what I believe has allowed for a decent part of the back and forth that you two had. I'm truly sorry for that.

If it's any solace, I'm taking a lot of the feedback here in this post and the discussion, and will be sharing it with our product team. There's a lot of room for improvement and additions to our tooling and messaging here. We definitely want to make sure folks can engage in the content and not spend a lot of their emotional energy feeling frustrated at misunderstandings.

I really appreciate you both sharing your thoughts on the platform, and hope you two can feel a little bit more at ease that Forem is keeping all of this mind.
