I would like to encourage everyone to read PEPs so that they never feel the
need to write those words ever again. ;)

PEPs are never decided in less than 24 hours, so there is no rush to read a
PEP as quickly as possible in order to reply ASAP. We also have so much
volume as it is when discussing PEPs that I think we should be encouraging
people to take the time to be informed by reading thoroughly before
replying so the back-and-forth is minimized and optimized for impactful
discussions (personally, I would love it if we all aimed for one, thorough
response/day when discussing PEPs, but that's just me). Otherwise we end up
with way more time spent in replies to things that would not have been
necessary to ask if we took our time reading. Remember, every email you
send is read by tons of other people and so there's a real time commitment
you're asking of the world every time you hit that Reply button.
