Hi Matt,

I really appreciate your long and kind response.
I still believe community should have "a common way of understanding, not
influenced by a certain region's specific situation", including "what time
this meeting is happening".
However, I also do understand what you are saying, difficulty of finding a
good time for everyone, and those decisions need to be made by & for the
active participants.

For now, acknowledging my opinion and explaining logically are more than
enough for me. Thanks again. :)

Stay safe and healthy.
