Iím hoping to use these postings as a direct way to address some of the top unresolved issues that most concern our community. I wonít get to everything all at once, but Iíll try to hit some of the big ones, and talk about these topics as openly as I can.
Given that our main concern here is that we have questions that have gone unanswered since pre-launch, and that no one else seems to have clearance to address it, I'd say this is indeed an invitation to ask.
