Consensus discussion: Lets BLOG it:

What are your thoughts?

Even though I agree that it would be great to eventually reach consensus without a vote, I don't think we have established a level of communications, cooperation, collaboration, procedure, introduction or trust to move to forgo a vote of consensus.

A process in which each Member is given fair opportunity to be heard, in which each Member fairly listens to the others, in which complete discussion of the issue is held, and in which decisions are made by general agreement of the voting Membership, but not necessarily by unanimity. e.g. (Consensus is reached if at least 55 of the 59 voting Members of the Roundtable agree.)
