I appreciate your generosity in sharing your resources with other

I would however like to humbly suggest that statements like this do
not help the Christchurch Robotics list & group be an inclusive and
accepting place (which I would certainly like it to be--regardless of
my current geographic location) and request that you consider not
making such remarks in future. I realise any exclusionary sentiment is
likely unintentional and am attempting to point this out in as
conciliatory manner as possible.

I recognise that not everyone on the list may agree with me or my
request. While I prefer to avoid conflict where possible I also
recognise that I have the luxury of choosing to ignore non-inclusive
language but it is important to me that our world of technology which
has given me so much (both materially and enjoyment-wise) is open to

My preference would have been to make this request in a private email
however as the language in question was on a public list I feel like
it is important that anyone who may have read it and felt excluded
know that it did not go by unnoticed.

Thank you for considering my request.

I look forward to hearing more about the exciting things made in your
workshop in future. :)
