Did you switch to private mails in the middle of the patch review?
Because I certainly see nothing of this sort.
There is two mails from wm4, one as a response to the original mail
with the initial concerns, and one days after one of your mails, no
response within minutes anywhere from him.

People that don't speak up at all may approve silently (or at least
not disapprove), someone that raised issues should give an explicit
OK/Nevermind/whatever, agreeing with you or withdrawing his
complaints, there is no "silent" option there.

You seem to assume a lot about your fellow developers, maybe we can
just agree that you'll be more explicit in the future and assume less
to know what others might mean or want?
