Great... I went and checked the archive, and there is indeed nothing of the
sort in neither the thread that started at [1] nor the one that started at
[2]. There are literally thousands of messages in the mailing list archive
for -vote during the period listed in the vote records, and I could only
find this[3] under a slightly differently named thread, and only after I
have now explicitely searched for aj's posts. Overall I just can't come to
the conclusion that voters who failed to catch this information[4] before
it came into effect brought it all onto themselves.
