i thought that with consensus a block meant that a proposal was stopped
until concerns were heard and perhaps a different proposal came out of
it. effectively, as i understand consensus, a block denotes that a
member collective of this network would not be comfortable remaining
part of this network if the network went ahead with said proposal.
so, what is happening is a drawing of sides right now. we cant forgo
consensus and tally votes from as many imc collectives that participate,
we can address concerns and mediate to the point of finding a mutually
agreeable solution, or we can continue to polarize the situation by
i block is a statement in consensus, especially in a network. by
continuing to move forward by supporting the proposal, you are saying
"we heard you didnt like this, so we are going to say that we do like
this and because of that, we also dont like you" that is called alienation.
i would like to support what jay said in that active moderation and some
sort of defined process will be necessary to resolve issues on a global
scale. or we can just continue with those that have access and a voice,
speak for all and act without hinderance. praise thee indy lords.
ohhhm. ohhhm. (it may be a bad joke, i am sorry. it helps me
personally to deal with situations.)
so, lets actually discuss issues instead of take sides. yes? no?

ps. anna, you might be able to chalk this up as the first idea of
consensus from an imc volunteer
