Well, ok. You and I couldn't do more. It's those other folk...
But to indulge in a small amount of seriousness: everyone who does more
that just participate as an inidivudal, technical contributor in the
IETF -- that is, everyone who works on any of the surrounding activities
in the IETF -- typically puts in quite a bit of effort. That's why I am
concerned that we not impart a sense that they aren't doing "enough" or
-- worse -- that the responsibility for making things better is 'theirs'
rather than 'ours'.
My own rule is simple: When I suggest that something be done
differently, I try to offer a concrete, specific suggestion, in as much
detail as I can formulate. At a minimum, it's meant to take some
responsibility for figuring out what needs to change.
