The whole point of project work is to work as a team. To have all of us 
giving the same collective opinion is pointless. We all have file 
collaboration as part of our projects. Whilst we are  not obliged to 
give feedback, we would like to be able to do so. As students, we 
believe we have useful points to make and from what we hear off-list, 
our contributions are welcome. We believe you are using your position of 
power to authorise censorship. It is easy for list members to ignore our 
posts should they so wish. Our aim apart from getting the best possible 
grade in our examinations is to be able to give our opinions freely. We 
do not seek anything more than the freedom to voice our opinion. You 
seem to think that we are destructively criticising your work. We are 
not. We merely see alternatives to the way you would have us work. 
Please try not to take our comments so personally. We are discussing a 
piece of software, there is nothing to be offended about.
Thank you
