Let me take a not-entirely hypothetical example. Let's suppose that
the DAM's have decided to expel a developer who is socially disruptive
but technically very adept. A group of developers are unhappy with the
expulsion and they start a GR to reinstate the expelled developer. The
GR goes through.
Now, we would have a very clear statement from the project saying that
it is OK to be a social idiot if you are technically competent enough.
If I wouldn't resign, I would feel like I'd too support the decision,
even if I voted against it.
