Let me clarify: I've thanked people who have *helped*, not necessarily
agreed. I have clarified in my comments to Michael that the security
team (which does not include Aristotle nor Peter, who have voiced their
objections and disagreements) had made this decision. When I wrote "we",
I had meant the security team.

Helping does not require agreeing and thanking does not indicate agreeing.

I hope this helps clear that up.
