I didn't say anything about the ballot options being ignored -- I said the
constitution doesn't say anything about ignoring foundation documents --
ie the social contract or the DFSG. We're actually doing that right now
in a sense, by continuing to leave bugs like #199810 unfixed.

Instead, he's acting as though they're false before they've been voted
on -- personally, I don't think that's any better. A controversial false
statement is just the inverse of a controversial true statement, afterall.

Anyway, I think I've said my piece.
