As usual, you fail to notice the part where you then go on to refuse
to consider any alternatives, or to consider whether dropping parts of
your wonderful Plan might make it easier to achieve a consensus that
will mostly meet your goals, and insist anyone who might thing you're
wrong has obviously failed to read and understand what you've written,
and spend more time citing debating rules than actually trying to convince
anyone of anything.

Not that there's any chance you'll clue yourself in this year. Maybe in
two or three though.
