So, I apologize, but I'm not going to disclose my leader vote in public.

I believe that there is a good reason for having secret votes in leader
elections (constitution §5.2.2), namely: knowing how you did vote for or
against a fellow DD can get personal. Even if I personally don't think
to be much affected by that: (1) I can't be sure and (2) I don't want to
take the risk to inflict that to the other candidates.

The "why" part of your question is way more interesting, but I believe
it can be answered by rather asking candidates how much they like
specific proposals of the other candidates and why. The rebuttals are a
first step in that direction; if mine are not enough, I generally
welcome questions on proposals of the other candidates that I've not
specifically addressed in my rebuttals.

I hope nobody will hold this against me.
