Keep in mind that some are technical, others are highly opinionated. (I have issues with any anti-spam scheme that includes specialized technology or money.) If you're willing to argue an issue, I'm sure that many of the authors are willing to discuss points. Give 'em a few weeks or so though. Speaking from experience, their brains are probably feeling a bit bruised at the moment.
