Wholeheartedly agreed.  We all need to develop an instinct for what to
discuss and what to decide silently so as not to bother others too
much.  It is absolutely natural that this takes some time and it requires
everybody to make himself heard, and to listen to the others.

I am absolutely happy to share ideas, and to discuss changes at length
before making them, especially if others even ask for it :-).
