it does indeed.

It would have been good to know earlier, though, that "the Seaside
community" is not particularly interested in the Summaries. If there
is no such interest for No. 17, what about the earlier ones? Why now,
all of a sudden? Has "the community" come to that conclusion just
recently? Why not responding to the News team directly, instead of
starting an off-topic discussion on the Seaside list? These open and
blunt "we don't want your stuff" posts really don't serve anyone. It's
just the kind of noise that seems to be undesired.

Let me quote myself: "There have been numerous Seaside-related news
items in the previous 16 Summaries." I doubt that the Summaries are as
off-topic as suggested. Is it futile to ask about that?
