Hi Karen,

we believe criticism is interesting and important, therefore we invite
people to criticise our works online and keep the criticisms as part
of the documentation. We don't feel like starting a discussion with
those anonymous criticisms although sometimes people start responding
to each others comments which is fine if it happens. So to answer your
first question YES there are several points in criticizing asn making
it possible to do it. Even though people don't write themselves it is
interesting for them to read what other people wrote we believe.

NO, a reaction from the public whatever it might be is not the main
purpose of our work, although it certainly is one purpose.

Best, Kristofer
