I assume you mean grow a pair of feet so I can put one down.

Now one of the reviewers has ventured to rewrite it himself, although he's also said I should "Feel free to use this or something else," and that he doesn't have anything more to add.

...or grow a pair and say "Unless there are some technical inaccuracies, this is the version we'll be using. Please submit comments based on this version."
Yesterday, I held a document review meeting in which one of my reviewers said that two paragraphs should be rewritten for clarity. I rewrote them and sent the new versions out to everyone who was at that meeting, and now one person says he liked my original wording better. So, what to do - come up with a hybrid, stick with the original wording, or give both versions to our editor and let him make the decision.
