First, thank you for the well thought-out non-flame post. There hasn't
been enough of that lately.

 I think that regardless of how the vote goes, that we should work on
improving this. Obviously, I can't see inside peoples personal emails,
but I see next to no communication between TUs except for the crowd
that hangs out on IRC. I don't really have anything constructive to
add regarding how we should improve it, but I think it's important to
do so.

Now, regarding the proposal. I think that we should edit it so that
the current proposal is for a three month probationary period during
which the proposed changes will be used as rules, and at the end of
which time we can vote again on whether to make the change permanant.
I don't know if I make that clear, but if anyone has a question,
please ask. I think this would address some of the concerns of such
changes being difficult to undo at a later date, as it should give us
an easy out if the changes prove to be ineffectual or overly onerous.
