Alain, hope for your apologies if you would prefer me sending this email 
to the TeX on Mac OS X Mailing *List* instead directly to you. You know 
better the list courtesy, so feel free to forward this message, partly or 
entirely, to the list.

I think that that momentous psychological effect was triggered by the 
accidental combination of several things, each of which is correct by 
itself: warning, capitals, and the expression "this list". We know that it 
refers to the list of requested features, but the email is in the setting 
of the Mailing List.

Despite the two occurrences of the word "list" in the subject line, which 
do point to two different usages of the word "list",  there is that 
passing thought "What is happening to the List?!", esp., in the context 
of the recent renewal of the List.

The right wordings are up to you (I am, after all, far lesser
native EN speaker than you), but perhaps something like

> This list is absolutely not an alternative to making requests at

The following list of (TeXShop) feature requests is absolutely not ...


The following (TeXShop) feature requests are absolutely not an alternative 
to making requests at


We have collected, up to now, the following (TeXShop) feature requests, 
which absolutely do not replace making requests at

May be the word TeXShop should be skipped; but perhaps it is good to be in 
the warning for clearness, if indeed this is about TeXShop features, as I 
have understood it.
