I understand exactly what you're saying, but in a large community, not all conversations can be monitored (or should be!) by individuals skilled in writing "genuine, thoughtful" comments in times of high emotions.

The nudges are pre-written with neutral language and are very clearly marked as such. I agree with you that when possible, "genuine, thoughtful" replies should be used, but this is not always possible.

Additionally, if a conversation is getting heated, a community member may not want to insert themselves into the conversation. In these cases, they can ask a neutral, third-party to post the nudge.

Nudges are not meant to replace "genuine, thoughtful" comments, only to provide an additional tool for community members to utilize.
