Dear Pierre,

thanks for contacting me. I am sure we might produce a news item about this. However the issue is very important and I think a guest blog post going into more detailed would be more appropriate. 

It would be fantastic if you could draft this. I am cc'ing here my ePSI platform colleagues. We will then publish it under you name on the front page prominently. What do you think?

All the best
