I like it.  It seems a good way to estimate true DD
sentiment.  Surely it beats letting him win who posts
the loudest.  It is informal and we should do it more

Intriguing.  It may interest you to learn that for my
own part

    (1) I voted; then

    (2) looked at your automated running tally;

    (3) noticed that another DD who rarely posts to
    the lists, but whose opinion I particularly
    respect, had voted differently; and

    (4) changed my vote to more nearly resemble his.

This is a fine form of persuasion without excessive list
noise.  Well done.
