I, as a voter, would also like to have ample time for discussion about
various topics after the IRC debate. Given the spread we have to many
time zones, and the speed with which discussions progress (not to be
confused with the number of e-mails per second), a week for discussion
really does sound to me like too little time.
Hurried campaigning does not seasoned choices make.
