TU votes were never meant to be secret, it only came about as the
implementation of the voting application. We don't live under a violent
military coup or anything. You should be able to identify with your
thoughts in a free society. The discussion period is there for people to
voice any concerns, if that creates tension - so be it. I hope we aren't
all wimps that can't take a little bit of conflict. I'd like to know
that our Trusted Users are able to voice their opinions and uphold the
Arch Way, etc.
