    Without a way to indicate support, how would you gauge where the consensus
    is moving (which is seen as being of great importance in IETF)? By the
    number of lengthy notes?
    Much of the discussion unfortunately consists of crossing notes with little
    if any due respect to what the other party has said or meant.
    Are we getting back to the concern for literacy?

    It is just as annoying there as here. If all you can effectively say is,
    "yeah, what he said," then you are not adding anything to the discussion.
    People on this list don't need a cheering section.
