Debates are more open when more people take part.  Four people slugging it 
out with three cheering is a very closed debate.  One of the reasons I 
haven't suggested any verbiage is that I won't know what to recommend until 
I get input from a whole lot more bards than are active on this list.  As I 
wrote earlier, "I don't think we're far enough along yet, because we haven't 
consulted any bards who aren't on this list yet.  This list is an extremely 
quick and efficient tool to get your ideas to a certain self-selected 
minority of the kingdom's bards, but it does not qualify, by itself, as a 
large enough body to make decisions."
