OK, so how do I set up an instant vote proposing that we kill this thread ? ;-)
Rather than have a formal poll, why not allow anyone to post a simple call for
votes, and if they manage to encapsulate the majority view we'll find out when
the votes roll in.
If nobody votes, that tells us something else (although I'm not sure what
precisely), and it costs us almost nothing (once we've got the systems set up).
OK, let us try this now --- to express your opinion of the ``votes when you
feel like it'' idea, send mail to something like:
if it makes you feel better. Just make sure the address starts with cfv-
and I'll tell you what happens in a day or two.
I'm just logging the From: and To: addresses, so there's not much point
putting a subject or body in the message.
