If you happen to re-roll for some reason, it might be a good idea to
explain why you are removing the period and capitalization since the
reason is not otherwise clear to the casual reader. So, perhaps:

    ... exactly will be edited. While at it, also drop the jarring
    period and capitalization, neither of which is otherwise present
    in the message.

or something like that.
