This is such a sticky issue — as you posited on Twitter last week, Danielle, the perception of whether we are representing our agency is almost entirely out of our hands. I therefore wholeheartedly second the call for caution and restraint.

We also need to know how to do that safely and wisely, and that is the part that is becoming much fuzzier.
