No, but Joyce had provided a more detailed explanation to anyone who was
reading the thread. To quote:

"To those who questioned my choice to include so many appendices: it wasn't
my choice. It wasn't even my manager's choice or my employer's choice.
Surely you've heard that the customer is always right? Perhaps more to the
point, the party that signs the checks can have whatever they demand, even
if it makes us cringe to produce it. Even if we've tried our best to
persuade the check-signers that there's a better way."
