When you rock the boat, there will be waves. After you introduce a
new feature, change a policy, or remove something, knee-jerk
reactions, often negative, will pour in.
Resist the urge to panic or rapidly change things in response.
Passions flare in the beginning. But if you ride out this initial
24-48 hour period, things will usually settle down. Most people
respond before they’ve really dug in and used whatever you’ve
added (or gotten along with what you’ve removed). So sit back,
take it all in, and don’t make a move until some time has passed.
Then you’ll be able to offer a more reasoned response.
