Yes. OTOH the procedure also calls for such statements to contain
(new) reasoning for or against the expulsion. I didn't have anything
new to add to the reasonings (either for or against) so, as per the
procedure, I didn't send a "me too!" email. So, counting the
statements on -private only tells us that X developers were for it
and Y against. We cannot say that X/(X+Y) of all developers were for
and Y/(X+Y) against.
