I assume this discussion is mostly aimed at people outside of CEA who are considering whether to take and help promote the pledge. I think there are many basic points which those people should probably understand but which CEA (understandably) isn't keen to talk about, and it is reasonable for people outside of CEA to talk about them instead.

I expect this discussion wasn't worth the time at any rate, but it seems like sharing it with CEA isn't really going to save time on net.
