Should a single "yes" vote really be enough to make someone a "trusted" user?

I understand the logic of the system but I think I would have opted for a
system based on a threshold of confidence. Of course, you could argue that
having the confidence of a single TU is enough.

Again, I'm not trying to change the system. I'm just discussing this for the
sake of the discussion.
