 	Hmm.  Sounds like this might need to be addressed, but I'm certain 
that I don't have appropriate access to fix things.

 	My question is, who will do the work if Allison doesn't?

 	Just a note that, if I've violated community norms (which you may or 
may not have done, but presumably Allison feels you have), I prefer to be told 
privately, and would consider that the polite thing to do.  If you prefer to 
hold that discussion on-list, that's fine, but please don't call Allison's 
attempts at being polite "trolling"; that is not at all (to my mind) an 
accurate description of her intent.
