not actually that grumpy

Dear [mailing list],

I have read (selected subsets) of the preceding discussion with much interest, and I think you'd all benefit if I threw in my completely unsubstantiated opinion here. I think we'll all agree that the color of the shed is critical, and I also have reason to believe that by stating my own personal preference I'll somehow affect the outcome of this discussion.

Also, I'd like to take this opportunity to interject something completely off-topic, either in an attempt to steer the conversation towards something I (at least purport) to be knowledgeable about, or just because I'm simply unaware that I'm derailing this conversation completely. The fact that this mail reaches hundreds of people, none of whom even care about the original conversation (let alone this new direction I'm attempting to take it) has never even crossed my mind, though with all honesty it's plausible that the whole public-performance thing has crossed my subconsciousness.
