Description: One suggestion I have for GBIF is that a feedback mechanism entailing an email cced to multiple participants some of whom supervise the others may not be an optimal way to unobtrusively and efficiently flag very minor errors. With the existing system every minor correction has the potential to escalate into an international incident unless the commenter writes carefully crafted, sensitive letters each time a typo is found. Please consider implementing a much friendlier and lower-key feedback mechanism as a high priority! I don't want to antagonize any more friends when I just want to improve bee maps.
