JR: I disagree. That's not Consensus fault. It Noisebridge' fault, for 
letting people join votes when they're late.

JR: so, "large" = "late"? No, it doesn't. I'm pro "you can't join a vote 
if you're late", but that applies to Majority voting too, not just 

Consensus fails in large groups, but is manadatory small groups (like 
the Board).

Most NB issues would best be handled by small, special-purpose 
working-groups, not the general membership. People who feel they must 
have a voice on every darned decision are welcome to join every darn 

Even Al admits (above) that Consensus works fine in small groups.
