Actually, I would say that most people probably don't care, so I'd say if you get 3-4 votes *against* something, then don't implement it. Most people who don't care one way or the other will say nothing, while those against something are more likely to speak up. Of course, a valid reason as to why they are against something should be a prerequisite. -- Vincent Danen @ http://linsec.ca/ Content of type "application/pgp-signature" skipped
