As I read it, he finds the poll itself too vague to be of much use to him 
(personally), and would love to hear on concrete things that can be 
improved upon. Such feedback *can* come from just discussion on this list, 
not *should* / *must*. I understood this to mean that we don't have to 
actively reach out to *everyone* and that a smaller list of concrete 
points of improvement might be a good starting point.

I don't think Olav said or suggested in any way that the opinion of users 
on this list is of greater value or importance to him than that of users 
who only read and write on the forum.
