Well, whatever the case, we know that:

1. Sébastien (seblu?) is the best example of a TU who was rejected at one time

2. Dave (falconindy) is _not_ to "blame" (he did the right thing by
being transparent)

3. Those who silently thought Dave must be right need a change of attitude

The current (majority) voting system is fine -- making decisions based
on consensus agreement is not a suitable method for the TU selection
process (it would needlessly raise the bar for something that is not a
matter of public safety).

Voting systems should eliminate bias, and in this case it did not
favour any one particular outcome (mixed opinions), so it in fact
worked pretty well. If an opinion was influential, then so be it. You
can't disregard the result just because you did not expect it (I
didn't either).

However, all these indicate that grasky is good to go for the next
round (after three months), so let us all not worry and continue what
we were doing. I'd personally like him to reapply when that time
comes. Til next time, then ;)
