Oh, that surprises me. I remember you posting that rule, but always
assumed that it was `your final word', and didn't even realised a
discussion followed:). I actually liked that simple rule.
(I like simple things that I can remember -- there seem to be so little
of those around any more).

If you are going to propose a different rule, could you please make
it at least as simple as the one above?

Oh, and remeber the definition of Democracy: A procedure by wich you 
ask the people what they want -- and if they don't want what you want
them to want, you just wait and then ask it again, until they do want
what you want them to want.
