I recall I had repeatedly further revised this introductory line and
settled on wording including "these are only ideas".

I recall I had revised this such that the intended recipient replies to an
unrelated innocuous recipient as themselves.  I thought this might reduce
weirdness that a surveillance system might profile -- e.g. law enforcement
oriented systems would be more likely to notice behaviors associated with
pretending to be somebody else.  My revision was lost.

I recall I had removed this final paragraph, after making the starting
paragraph regarding getting a job.  My revision was lost.

I recall sending the message, but considering that my idea needed better
rearchitecting around the specific concerns and skills of the people in the
thread, before sending it.
