I think merely suggesting will not stop people that don't care from writing
bad commit messages, but will help those who do care.

I also appreciate that enforcing standards on such petty things can go a
long way of making people less welcomed to our community.

After all, rules are meant to be broken, metrics are meant to be worked
around, and too many rules are meant to make people unhappy.
