"we ask that you take the domain name down immediately" isn't especially polite. It isn't incredibly rude, either, but I wouldn't hold it up as an example of a polite request.



Agreed. I wish we would have phrased it more congenially, especially given William's good relationship with the project already.


It didn't feel very polite; when I read the message I was outside picking blackberries with my 7-year old nephew, and "immediately" was impossible to comply with.


Yes, I'm sorry it was phrased as "immediately", which was unnecessarily harsh.
