Dude, consensus doesn't mean "me, and the people who agree with me",
it means "everyone", "everyone, apart from a few people who don't really
mind in any case" or "everyone, apart from maybe a few crazy people".

If you're going to define me as a crazy person who should be ignored,
please have the honesty to be explicit about it. If not, don't imagine you
had a consensus.
