Then why didn't you say something?

This, to me, just proves that theforum is a waste. There is a
fundamental problem here with trying to have some sort of "voting"
process with an undefined body. We have had endless discussions about
what constitutes a quorum and it never really amounts to anything. And
the result is that (a) nothing gets done, and (b) the only discussion
that happens is about what the rules of discussion should be.
