Robert, you know better than this. I can't believe I really need to
quote how the ASF works to you of all people. But I do need to do so
for others who might be reading this:

"Reasons for Votes
People tend to avoid conflict and thrash around looking for something
to substitute - somebody in charge, a rule, a process, stagnation.
None of these tend to be very good substitutes for doing the hard work
of resolving the conflict."
