A simple majority of 51% isn't a consensus among the team, regardless
of how many people voted. I don't think proposals should pass at all
when nearly half of us object.

Rather than the quorum, we could require a super-majority (60%, 70%)
of the trusted users to vote YES and handle inactivity removals

If 8 people are on vacation, it's not a good time to be passing proposals.
